WHAT IS THE BEST SURF REEL FOR $200 OR LESS for a 10/11ft Shimano Tiralejo????
I tested the Penn Battle 5000 and the Shimano Stratic FI 6000 earlier in the year. I had the Battle 5000 on my light 8' rod and thought it was an awesome reel for the price. Best thing about the Battle series is the price. I am still using the Stratic 6000 and I switch this reel around a lot. I pair it with my 9' Lamiglass for surf fishing and then with my 7'.2" Shimano Terez when I am in the boat. I have the Stratic 6000FI on sale for $139.95 as this particular model looks like it's going to be discontinued next year.
