For live lining eels? I don't do that much, but yes, I'd go with an Abu 7000 size reel, with a levelwind though. IMO you don't need the mag since, I assume, you are not worried about throwing eels for max distance.


But if you do plan on throwing bunker chunks and want the distance, the mag with no LW is a great reel.


The Daiwa 30-size SHV or SHA is nice too, and less money. If you are free spooling the eel, the lever activated spool engagement on the Daiwas is nice. With the Abu you have to crank the handle. I prefer the lever for live lining, but that's JMO.
