Thoughts.....Daiwa Sealine x20SHA
Does anybody have any experience with this reel....particularly from the surf?
I'm a big Shimano guy but I won this reel in a contest. I've fished it a few times now and I can throw 3 oz of lead a mile with it. I have it spooled up with 50 pound power pro and it has performed well on some much bigger fish (California bat rays to be exact-in the 40 pound range).
I plan on using it for bucktailing and would like to put it on a 10-11 foot rod. In the surf I will most likely strip the 50 pound braid and go with 30-40 pound.
Gear ratio: 6.1:1
Capacity: 20lb 210yards
Do you guys see this as a practical reel for what i plan on using it for? If not I can always use it as a boat rod.
Also, i did a search on the sealine and only came up with posts about the sealine surf rod...as much as I love Shimano i may look into these rods if they are made to match the sealine reel.
Think like a fish....
