Hi guys, I’m looking at buying a reel that can handle catching a kingi off the rocks or from a wharf. I am looking into the low/mid-priced reels.
This will be my stick bait/popper reel and be loaded with 50-80lb braid
Low price range:
$239 PENN Spinfisher V 8500 - 15.8kg Drag
$269 Fin-Nor Offshore 8500 - 27kg Drag
Mid price range:
$399 Shimano Saragosa 10000 15kg Drag
$499 Daiwa Saltist 6500 15kg Drag
I am new to Topwater fishing so I have no idea if these reels are suitable to do the job. Any recommendations of other reels or feedback on these ones would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
