6500 Spinfisher vi lc

Couple questions. You can’t use a standard 6500 spool on long cast model, correct?

 For those familiar with Florida panhandle surf fishing. Is the drag on the long cast enough for surf fishing in this region? Not fishing for sharks but one does occasionally catch one and bull reds pretty common. Kind of new to saltwater fishing. Been using my 750ss’s (with ht100 drags) and a Daiwa 8700 with the original Teflon drags. And they have been doing fine dragwise.  Don’t know the drag numbers on these reels, but suspect they are less than 20 pounds. Hooked up with what we think were bull reds on the Daiwa and one of the 750’s. Only sharks I have caught are 2 3 footers on my Battle 2 3000.

The 6500 would also be used for catfishing at home.

Would like to have the long cast model for the surf. I am throwing what I have now at different distances and would like to have a reel that is capable of throwing further than what I have. And I know rod, technique etc all comes into play. But all being equal looking at the long cast for more distance.

 Thoughts please.
