I have been out of the fishing scene for quite a while and I was wondering if I could get some advice. I currently use 2 ABU Garcia Ambassador bait reels for Striper/the like. I would like to get a good spinning rig. What is a good Mid-Range spinning reel? I have a couple of ST. Croix rods that I could use. I just need the reel...

Thanks
Mark

I like the Shimano Stradics, and the Cabo's arent that bad either.

Im picking up a Stradic next week.

Still not enough info to give you a solid answer.
30# mono could go on a Penn 706z which is most comfortable on a 9 1/2' to 11' rod.
30# braid could go on a Daiwa SS 2600 which is a good fit on an 8' rod.

Either setup works for stripers, one is better for schoolies in the back and the other is good for bigger fish out front.

8' Rod - #30 Mono

That's an odd combination, sounds more like a boat setup then a beach setup. Mono that heavy on an 8' rod is going to seriously hamper your casting ability no matter what reel you use and any reel that can carry 30# mono is going to be huge on an 8' rod.

My favorite 8' setup sports a Daiwa Tournament Whisker ss2600 with 14# Fireline (actual breaking strength is close to 25#). I've taken more fish then I can count off the jetties in Northern Monmouth county with this setup and for fishing in upper Delware bay it should do quite well (I'm assuming you're talking about plugging what with the rod only being 8') .

My sons rig carries a Penn 450ss spooled with 17# Berkley Silver thread and that is a nice little plugging outfit as well. It doesn't cast nearly as far as the Daiwa but its a reel that can better handle the beating an 11 year old tends to give it.

I'm sure there are some Ticas and Okumas that might fit the bill as well but I don't have a lot of experience with them, perhaps some of the other guys can offer their 2 cents on those reels.

Sudsy, about the Fireline, are you saying that they are way underated? So approximately double the given to get the real strength? I must test this. Interesting.

Looked at it this weekend and it is a 6'6" w/ #20 mono on it at the moment.

Found an article on the "Santini" lure and I am going to pick up supplies to make some of these and try them out this week.

Thanks
Mark
