I have decided on the avet sxj raptor for my jigging rod but I can't make up my mind on drop rod/ general boat rod. I am thinking the avet lx raptor or mxl raptor. The lx raptor holds 520yds of 80# braid and weighs 25oz and the mxl holds 400yds of 80# braid and weighs 22oz. This will be for fishing texas and Louisiana gulf. I am leaning towards the mxl but I wanted more experienced help in deciding which reel to get. All help is appreciated.
