2P/1P LITE (1508) REEL RECOMMENDATION

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

Looking to build the All Star 1508 rod and was looking for conventional reel recommendations - Penn 525 (Mag or T), ABU, etc. I have a Grand Wave on my heavy heaver right and am not 100% happy with it (Plastic left side plate broke as spool spindle broke through it during casting, tension adjustment knob does not work) and do not want to order another Daiwa reel. Would a ABU 7000C or 9000C series (old) reel work and take advantage of this rods capabilities for casting 3-4-5-6 oz and bait (8-N-B8 in a pinch)? Would this reel work for entry level tournament casting?

 

Thanks

I use an older 7000C3, magged, upgraded drag, and levelwind removed, on my 1509 and it handles 8nBait fine...my only concern was being a little short on line capacity with 30lb mono, but I haven't been spooled yet. wink.gif
