Need help choosing a reel

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I just bought a new rod- Major craft solpara SPS-962MH (20-50g).

 

And I need a new reel which would be used for shore jigging of bonito, small tuna and amberjacks.

I would put 20lb Pe braid on the reel. So far I've found 4 competitors: Shimano Exage 4000FD, oKuma Ceymar 55, oKuma Azores 55s and Sakura Silver Code 4005.

The oKuma Azores is a bit higher in price than the exage and sakura, but is it worth it ?

Which one of these is the best bang for the buck?

That's my style of jigging. Fast crank, however, I'm not familiar with those reels. You'll get better responses specific to this need on *********.  There's lots of jigging fanatics.  I only use Shimano Ocea Jiggers and Accurate reels as my preference.
