Rated 5 out of 5 by cobybear super a perfect surf casting reel , could not believe how far i can cast with it with 50# braid line and using penn 11' rod, when you want reach out September 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by donewithit Great reel Originally the penn 525 mag was going to be my first choice due to its reputation. Since penn quit production of the 525, availability is limited. At first I was leery about buying a made in china reel, but after casting it, i can say it is a well built, smooth casting reel. February 16, 2012

Details:I have had other non penn "braid ready" spools and the braid still spun around the spool under high drag
Details:I am interested in th Squall 15 -will this stand up to heavier casting weights???
this will be used with my Ocean master 10' heavy casting from the sand.
Details:I live in San Diego, and I am looking for a heavier set up to fly line live bait and target large Calico Bass, Halibut and Yellowtail. I'd be fishing in and around kelp beds with 30-50lb braid. Would this be a better choice over the Daiwa Saltist Black Gold 35, and why/ why not?

A:For continuous cranking from bottom with braid , your question really is , which reel will last the test of serious use , not occasional use . The Senators are a great grouper reel in florida as well as Halibut reel off Oregon and Alaska . I dont know about the Daiwa your talking about . Id go to tackle store that has them and set them side by side and physically compare them and prices . warranties ? Calicos can get very big and fight hard , its better to have a workhorse in your situation , than a pretty reel , because a pretty reel wont last long , it has to have the guts to do the job repeatedly
