No, a spinner actually gets a jig deeper and faster than a conventional reel as it doesn't have to spin the spool to drop the lure. Working the jig is brilliant with a spinner too, as you don't have to lay line at the same time and can play with erratic retrieves so always ideal for "fishing"...
Fishing the jig is fine with a spinner, catching not so much.
For a light setup get an Okuma Komodo 471P...cranking power and line lay taken care of, will double duty as a light popping reel.
Most of the domestic "popping" rods are no bueno.
Tips too soft to move a real popper and action too fast that punishes the angler.
Ideal rod is the opposite of a live bait or rail blank. You need a stiff tip to move a popper and a slow action for using a spinning reel.
Stiff tip and faster...
No worries as tranx is a fine reel for sure used within its limits.
But that SS gear of the Komodos will last as long as 4 tranx gears pushed hard. Or something like that anyways as it is hard to strictly quantify. Regardless the Komodo gearing is vastly tougher and an amazing value.
