A bit much for surf fishing eh?

For that money I prefer a Shimano Aero Technium MgS, a reel designed for high performance surfcasting focused on the most extreme long cast capability and fighting big fish in a 17oz package.

The twin spin just doesn't fit on the beach, at best it offers mediocre surfcasting performance where it counts, overkill where it doesn't in a heavy package at high cost.

Great reels for the boat, a bit too heavy to plug with!

Thank you gents! Geuss I made a bad purchase then? I was hoping that I had bought a quality reel, that was integrally strong, and would last a lifetime.

I think you missunderstood, you purchased a great reel that will last you a lifetime it's just a bit heavy to carry and plug with on an open beach, if it's your go-to reel then you'll get used to the weight and keep those guns going strong!

From what I understand The Accurates are great reels. Like Cappy said they are bit heavier than what most plugging guys are accustomed to carrying around. Use it and enjoy it.

Hi Mark, thank you for your reply! I happened to purchase the Accurate Platinum Twin Spin SR20. I've used it a lot since the season started. I'm truly happy with it. I have it on my St. Croix 10' 6" Legend Surf. This combo is perfectly balanced. The fits about 480yds. of 50lb. Power Pro. I love it!!! I fish the ditch a ton. And have yet to become fatigued! It has performed impeccably!!! Do not regret buying it one iota!!!
