I have pretty much fished shimano tiagras for all my bigger outfits in the past, but I have been out of fishing for around 6 years, and seems okuma and avet has come a long way. and all my tiagras went bye bye
I have pretty much committed to the avet, but I want to get some 2nd opinions. This reel is for 60lb and I want to fill it with straight JB 80lb spectra and a 20 yard fluro top shot. The rod is a 765ml. I want something that is castable, but can handle 60lb. This setup is really just for tuna fishing on the long range boats. The avet seems that it will do this nicely with around 500yds of 80lb spectra. I really really like the new makaira SEs, but I feel like the 15 is too small for 60 and the 20 is too large for it and wont be as castable. thoughts?
