What is an affordable reel that could be used for tuna, etc when fishing offshore? I got a couple roller guide rods and just need reels.
Good info from the folks. What is the line ratings for the rods, and length?
Just adding this, got a Shimano TLD 20, bit old but solid w/upgraded drag, with 80 lb JB hollow core braid looking to sell. The line is probably worth as much as the reel, but that reel had caught more Blackfin tuna, AJ's, king's, snpper, etc than should be allowed by law.
If you're targeting YFT, your reel should be beefier than the 20, as well if your rods are above 50 lb class you need to look for the class reels suggested, not the 20.
If the 20 fits the criteria and interested, email me and we can talk. firstname.lastname@example.org
