Hi! I've been looking into getting a saltwater spinning reel for surf fishing down in Florida. I have been searching all over and my highest priority is weight and line cap.

The best ones I've found so far are the Penn Spinfisher 4500 and the baitfeeder III
https://www.amazon.com/Penn-Spinfisher-S...e=UTF8&th=1

I don't know I may not mind how heavy it is but do you guys have any recommendations? I will also eventually move down there so I'll be using it frequently.

Thanks!

PS- I am going to get a 10' surf rod and am aiming for a 4000 reel, should I get a bigger version? I've always been a bass fisherman so I am just so timid of how big the sizes are.

Line capacity is more a function of size than model. FWIW I use Daiwa BGs for both FW (2500/3000) and SW (6500) and have been happy with them. This review has a detailed analysis of that series.

Hope that helps.

Pfluegerr President 6940 will hold all the line you could possibly want. Good drag system as well.
Tight lines
