What is your take on a Penn 750SSm for surf fishing plugs and bait. I am new to the sport and do not have any idea as what type of equipment to purchase. Will this reel be over kill for what I need
You could handle a much bigger rod with a 750 ssm as a bait reel on an 11 or 12 ft rod...I have two 650 ssms that I barely use anymore because I rarely throw anything larger than my 11 ft Penn Spinfisher with bait. Usually I'm tossing a 9 or 10 ft Tica TC2...with much lighter shimanos stradics for plugging.
