Might as well put him on a 2-speed double platinum while we're at it.... but, if you want a be a real "beast-master" blood & guts "old-school" playa...err..fisherman... Go with a Penn Senator and you will really have yo' JAWs action jumpin' off big time... That guy Quint with the piano wire can't be wrong Smile I have an e-glass Fenwick like that Domski.... when is the seven/six-giller trip Capt'n ...

BTW-those reels you already have are plenty good for what you are doin' shark fisher I like graphite Newells that are light-weight, 4/0 in size, tuff as nails, stardrag, and very castable......

Depends on what you are going to be using it with

8oz n bait
1/3oz lure
lots of options but cant give advice until we know what you are going to be using....

and the biggest question is how much can you afford to spend $$$$$$

It's not the reel. It's the caster. I have Squidders and Jigmasters that out cast the high end stuff. Practice, practice practice. My favorite, or one of them is a Tanified 506hs. Fast retrieve, (which helps a lot when practicing casting), smooth casting, just your basic conventional. Only drawback is because of the high speed retrieve there's not a whole lot of drag pressure. I've burned more than a few out on rays and sturgeon. Practice with the old school stuff.
