I see no good reason to use a spinning reel on 8 and bait situations.

Clearly spinning is superior for plugging, but if you're throwing more than 3 or 4 oz, fogedaboudit, just get a convent. reel and be done with it.

AT any rate, lots of good suggestions here for finger protection.

I wear grease monkey gorilla grip gloves from the Home Depot. I can tie knots with them on and they keep my hand fairly warm. They do a decent job protecting my fingers.

Remember my Dad using one of these on his thumb when I was a kid (back before there were cameras ). Don't see the need with my magged reels now.
