Levelwind is the guide in the front of a baitcasting reel that goes back and forth as you are reeling, this allows the line to be even spooled on the reel as you are reeling.

Non-levelwind reels tend to bunch up in one section of the reel if you aren't paying attention on the retrieve, they are also a more likely canidate for the professional overrun aka the birds nest, they will however allow for much longer casts if you are careful due to no resistance.

Pretty sure the levelwind advantages and disadvantages will speak for themselves with the non-levelwind described.\

hope this helps.

Did not know that had a name.. Thanks

Ok this must be why I am seeing "conventional" reels as a description when shopping.
