    First slow pitch setup advice

    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"...

    First slow pitch setup advice

    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. 2 cents. Have fun.

    Ocean Extreme Tuna Sniper Rod Question

    You'll have a gas on schoolies with that light rod, but true 50# will be a real handful. If fishing from a sport boat go heavier to avoid the clusterfuck.

    Phenix Megalodon Popping

    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...

    Most Durable Low Profile Reel for Shallow Water Rockfishing?

    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. Wahoo...

    Most Durable Low Profile Reel for Shallow Water Rockfishing?

    Komodo is class of the bunch for toughness, imo, with the Lexa HD a close second. Revo Beast for all day casting. Tranx are over priced for sure. You do have to maintain them all or come to grief.
