Way CHEAPER Than Purchasing Neoprene Reel Bags!

There are many reasons for using my system of employing cloth bags over neoprene. First & most importantly THE COST! I've been doing this for years and the bags protect the reel's finish from chipping. Also retards the breakdown of lubrication as well. The worst scenario is having the edge of the spool's lip getting nicked or scratched against something. This'll cause line damage when the line rubs against that area.

Since i don't drink i bought 180 drawstring 750ml 8-9in bags off eBay for only $85! My most massive spinning reels can easily fit these bags (just the handle stays outside). On my smaller spinners 5K and under the handle will fit inside the bag as well. Just recently Amazon has just started carrying these empty bags.

I use drawstring bags as well, but I make them out of cheap terry dishrags. I have four or five colors which helps me keep the reels straight.

Some other great thing about bags over covers is that they protect the handles, you can use them for extra spools and whatnot, and I can just throw them all in the washing machine now and then.

I post a picture of what I use when I get home.

Yes, you're correct on the handles. I color code my bags. The larger purples for my spinners to the orange bags for my bait casters.
