I’m looking at the concept A 8:1 or the Revo Rocket hyper 9:1. Open for suggestions. Thanks in advance!

I use a Revo Rocket with Power Pro 50 (?) lb braid on my frog set up but also flip with it occasionally. It is my most expensive reel and my least favorite reel. I prefer my Lews and Diawa Tatula. But to be fair, these are on different rods with different lines, so it could be the reel or it could be a combination of other factors.

I like the Rockets. It’s not because I think they are better but because the Revo is the most comfortable reel for my hand.

Great choice. Mine is the older Steez 7.9:1. About the same.

Nothing like a super fast reel to pick up slack really fast.

Quantum Accurist with a flipping switch. You won't ever go back to a standard reel if you see how efficient you can work with a flipping switch.

Loving my new Shimano Curado 200Xg's in 8.4-1 gear ratio! Best built Curado since the E models! Best buy for the money in my opinion. You can spend more money for a tad lighter reel but at some point it's diminishing returns. With proper maintenance, theses will last and last. I've used the [censored] out of my E's and after cleaning them their as good as new!

I use these for pitching jigs and Tx. rigs. I don't ever "flip" because I like pitching a bait a lot better.

Just about any reel will work fine for flipping because you crank in the fish from such a short distance and you don't even cast with the reel.
Some reels were designed specifically for flipping and that is what I would look for if you are going to have a dedicated "flipping" set up.
