hi want a new reel for a 30/50 what do you recomend
That's a beast of a rod Terry, do you think a little 330 will balance it properly?Penn 320 or a 330 if you need the larger line capacity. They are very rugged reels with the benefit of a lever drag.
OK, I am not used to this big stuff anymore so find it hard to visualise.I have a Penn 50lb rod that I rarely use these days but have the Penn 330 on that that and have had no problems.
Only for congering for the really big ones Tom. I have had an 80 and an 85 on it and was glad I was not using anything lighter.OK, I am not used to this big stuff anymore so find it hard to visualise.
What do you use the 50 for?
....A back up winch post and winch for the trailer?
....Only joking! :kissing:
...you would have taken it on 20lb class Terry.Only for congering for the really big ones Tom. I have had an 80 and an 85 on it and was glad I was not using anything lighter.
With a Titus Gold 50, I'm surprised you didn't consider a Titus Gold 20 or 30 - The Titus Golds are my favorite reel; it's hard to beat their performance and value for money. Even a TG15L will hold 330 yards of 30lb mono line - 40lb if you use a low diameter mono.i want it for big conger and heavy wrecking we can realy strugle at times with 20/30
iv been using a okuma titus gold 2 spee5 50 that i use for big sharks but dont need the capasaty with wrecking got penn320ld but not realy balanced with 30/50
The Avet SX has 9lb drag at it's out of the box setting.look at the avet thread, they do a reel that would suit, supplied by rokmax,
the sx would be much too small but they do bigger!
im using it on a penn tide cutter whch is mainly a braid rod but good with mono still its a slim rod like the waveblasterThat's a beast of a rod Terry, do you think a little 330 will balance it properly?
Hence my comment on the Formula 15Kg as opposed to my first sensible suggestion of the Torium 30 which willbe dwarfed on a broomstick.
