F/S REEL FOR UPTIDING

Post by joliroger »

In the first instance I know that it is not the perfect senario ie the reel should be a Multi but I was asked to recommend one suitable for the job and Iv'e got to confess I ain't got a clue, the Guy is on a tight budget and can't get used to a Multi......................can anyone help ?????? ;;)

Hi Joli mate, as distance is really unimportant may I sugest any fixed spool reel with a good line capacity and a good power handle to cope with the big uns.

The only reason I say good line capacity is for the distance coupled with the depth that you may be fishing.
Cheers
keith :D :D

It realy depends on what species he intends to target. Fixed spool reels sold for sea angling in the UK don't tend to have good drag systems as they are targetted at shore anglers who lock down the spool completely. With fast running species like Tope and Smoothound etc, a good drag system is a must. There are fixed spools with such systems, the Yanks use them to fish for Tarpon etc. These are very specialist reels and not generally imported in the UK because of price. If he only fishes for small species, incapable of snapping his line, I don't see a problem with any decent make of sea angling fixed spool reel. If he intends on fishing for larger more demanding species I would persevere with getting to grips with a 6500/7000 size multiplier reel.
