  1. I agree with the tsunami five star they’re amazing for the price. I also like the avenger bait feeder I’ve got a 40 I’ve used for a year and have fresh and salt with very minimal maintenance and it’s handled everything from Spanish to big carp and stripers. I’d even recommend the penn pursuit, I got one about 3 years ago and it’s still fine. I’ve got a buddy who uses them for his pier gear and has caught good size tarpon ans big jacks on them with no problems at all. Although I’m not saying these reels are better than reels stated above I just think they’re good options on the lowest end of the price range.
  2. “Fish slower” this was told to me by an older man in his 90’s during my first few times fishing IRI, I did what he said and listened to all his other knowledge and stories and began to catch fish.
  3. I’m in!
  4. I have very few posts so I feel as if I have little to no say In this matter I just figured I’d add that that picture is indeed a pond In Delaware I live about 15 minutes from it. Other then that I’m staying out of this lol
  5. I'm gonna have to give it a try thanks a lot. It definitely seems like it'll have lots of benefits
  6. I have that exact same setup except a 40 sealine x instead of the old slosh. I’ve considered using it but didn’t want to look like a googan how well does that work out for you?
  7. My buddy uses a 5000 on that exact rod, I thought it would be small but when I felt it it fit perfect. It’s a super light combo and works really well.
  8. I’m excited to start using mine as soon as I get them!
  9. Hey tommy thanks for the advice, I talked to you on the phone a week or so ago about a rod choice and mark teaching me how to cast. I appreciate all the advice everyone has given me thank you all very much.
  10. I do not want a level wind I have no problems laying the line myself. Most likely going to be using mono at least in the beginning.
  11. Thankyou very much! I’m comfortable with both braid and mono I’m still not 100% sure what I am going to use but I will most likely be starting out with mono.
  12. I appreciate the help from everyone this site is awesome.
  13. How do you like the avets for distance?, I've heard from some that they don't get as much distance as a star drag reel but I have no personal experience with them and would be willing to give them a try.
  14. It's going to do double duty but mostly distance casting. I have another heaver I use for fishing.
  15. I am getting ready to purchase my first setup for true distance casting I have the rod picked out but I’m not sure about the reel. I’ve been looking at akios reels but was wondering if anyone had some input on them or any other good reels for the job. This is not my first time using a baitcaster or a rod like this so I’m not worried about getting something “easy” to learn with.
