    60-80lb rod options

    Another thought: if you can fish 80, fish 100.

    60-80lb rod options

    Centaur is more of an 80, 100 in a pinch, rod. The 76 Raptor is a 60, light 80, rod.

    Reviews of Tern 600XN - thinking of buying

    I've been also thinking about the Tern 600XN for mainly wahoo and a backup yoyo. I think the NN might be good for just wahoo and not yoyo, I kind of like the versatility because I'm not made of money.

    100lb setup on a budget

    Avet HXW Raptor and an Okuma PCH 741XXXXH or XXXH. $800, add on line and you’re OTD for $1k. Personally, if I didn’t have 1k to spend on a new 100# setup then I would wait until I have the funds. I wouldn’t feel comfortable fighting a huge fish on gear that’s borderline.
