I would reccommend the Penn International 955, you pay for it, but then again it will last forever. They run around $210.00. If this is more than you want to spend you can always go with the Garcia 6500.

A Abu is a all around good reel. Get the 6500 or 5500, 6500 is my favorite. They cost around $70.

It was just a SWAG!

I'd try the Shimano Curado Super Free. This thing can flat out cast. Costs around $140, but it is low profile and sweet. I also like the Abus. Can't go wrong either way!

Good Luck!

I would watch the ABU they have pressed on handles ( the knobs) and I have had them pull off when setting a hook hard.Try the Shimano they have screwed on handles and they won't pull off.metro
