What size would fit best for perch fishing and striper fishing? And is this reel worth the money?

just bought cabelas salt striker metal on sale $29. In the reviews section for this reel, a few people have claimed it to be almost identical to Penn Sargus, but the SSM has more bearings-9. Weight, line capacity seem to be the same. I would guess 4000 for perch 5000 for bigger stripers. It is a heavy reel, but the drag is strong and smooth.

Cabelas salt striker is a rebadged Okuma (if bait runner series), otherwise it's a daiwa. Sargus is a good reel. Solid all metal frame and good drag. I had a 5000 that I sold to slowriprun a few years ago. Caught a lot of bat rays and a sturgeon on it. Will mate well to a 9-10ft surf rod.

Btw. You should go bait casting. Spinning is for trout fisherman. Lol. Jk.

Haha ya i have a baitcaster just felt that the spinner would be another good setup on the rack

You know what might go 4000 and just use power pro for it.

4000 size is all you need. 30lb pp would work.

Well this might be a late reply and input but I bought a 4000 and like others said with 30lb power pro, works like magic, perfect size and weight, fits enough line to do the job.
