Speeking of set-ups. Anyone looking for a 706z reel I have one that I won on this wonderful site. I am a lefty. Its a right hand model. I would trade it for a 500m jigmaster.

500M can be a tough one

Best I can do is Newellized Surfmaster 200.

I built it up by combining the best parts of 3 reels and adding new parts where required so some parts are new, some are used. I've never gotten around to using it so I'd consider it partially used and very solid.

The bars, base, and bushings are Newell. The bars are aluminum (and almost impossible to get) and used, they have surface marks and could probably used a good buffing. The graphite base with stainless foot is brand new and the Newell Teflon bushings are brand new. The spool is the Penn aluminum spool, which I actually prefer over the Newell, it's also brand new, I still have the box. The rings, star drag and screws are also new. There is absolutely no pitting or green stuff on the body of the reel.

The one part that could probably use upgrading is the handle - I left this one on as it came from an old timer friend who, back in the day, beached a few 50's with it - I left it on hoping it would carry some Mojo along with it. He no longer throws conventional (arthritis in the hands) and gave me 2 of my 3 Surfmasters (I added the Newell stuff)

I can also throw in an approximately 400+ yard spool of 50#+ braid to load it up.

Reelin is the s6000 the saltiga spinning reel? Im looking for a fit for the 12' 6'. Perhaps the sealiner x50 SV casting reel be a good fit. Its 19 ounces. I see a lot of guys pair the 30 xsv with the 11'9" rod.

No, the Tournament S is a Japanese / European market only, long distance casting spinning reel series.

Don't know how old you are but back in the mid-80's Daiwa sold a reel called the Tournament SS-9000 Millionmax. A NIB one sold last month on ebay for $470.

This is the same reel with a slightly shallower spool (still holds 300 meters of 25lb mono). With the introduction of the Basia this reel has come down in price. I have seen it on a UK tackle site for about $220 + shipping. It is an incredible "big fish" reel. 3.9-1 ratio, 10 disc drag that locks at 15 kilos (33lbs). Here's mine. The spool is 45mm long, same as the Basia.

Default cheapo set up works for me

This year I fished from the surf mostly, 2 dead sticks in the water, set up about 30 feet apart, using fresh bunker chunks. I am new to this, my first year of serious fishing. . After about 3 months of using my cheapo set up I went out and bought a shimano bait runner 4500 and a nice diawa 10ft surf rod
The other stick I bought at a yard sale for one dollar!! it appears to be a handmade, (custom made?) 10 ft medium surf rod with a cracked guide that I did a quickie repair with some epoxy, the base handle is also showing signs of cracking. mounted to this ONE DOLLAR rod is a $39 penn silver series reel. Now here is the kicker....every striper I caught this year (7) and about 90% of the blues I caught were brought up on the surf with the Cheapo setup. Just a coincidence? Im afraid to upgrade and let go of the busted rod and cheap reel!! I was thinking of getting my lucky 99 cent rod overhauled.....LOL!!!
PS anyone know how much it runs to recondition a rod? new guides, reel seat, and grips? where I should get it done? I live in staten island ny...............

Hmmm, without checking (for shore fishing);
11'8" lami w/ ABU 6500 & 17# silver thread (plug/ lt. bait)
9' lami w/ 450 Shimano & 20# Trilene (plug)
10' Tica w/ Penn 525 Mag & 30# Silver Thread (heavy bait)
10' ABU workhorse w/ converted 7000 ABU & 30# silver thread (heavier bait)
8' fenwick w/ 6500 ABU & 17# Silver Thread (light plug/bait)
10' Fenwick w/ Okuma #10/11 & SA'SW 11 wt. Floater /sink (streamers/poppers)
9' F&F Custom w/ Okuma 10/11 & SA's SWT 12 wt. sink tip (weighted stuff & droppers)
8'6" Fenwick w/ pflueger & Cortlands 8 wt level/DT (for rolling) (anything in tight quarters)
There's more, but basicly they're my go to's when I get out and about.
Oh,,, can't forget the little 6' heavy FW (whatever it is) with the 5500D ABU and 17# for dock / canoe work (utility rig, droppers, etc.). (shame on me).
