I'm needing to spend my bassproshops points and am looking at 2 inexpensive Shimano spinning reels that have good reviews. One has front drag and the other rear drag. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?

Welllllll

The front drag has the dress on the front side, which is more noticed when in public.....:moon

Sorry, I just could not resist! LOL

When I read the title, I immediately thought of people dressed in drag...

Stay away from rear drags! They are notoriously inconsistent. You can always tweak a front drag if need be but rear drags are hopeless. If it is for fish that don't fight [bass] you can get by with a rear drag. For fish that fight back, front drag.
