with that set up and using braid and short mono topshots you would cover a wide range of fishing and be ok, good first setup
have a 12 and a 15ld single speed both work great for 1/2 to overnite trips the 15 handles 30lb. topshots and yellowtail with no problem
looks reaaly good,nice job
try turners 8ft rod 4-10 0r 6-12 and a cheap little reel don't need much
I have one you'll love it
the 15ld is perfect for that size don't need a 2spd for that light of set up
wonder is there going to be a auction on inventory and equipment how would find this info
for the thread spool problem have you tried centering a small guide directly in front and centered in the middle of the spool just wondering
do you do the conversion for the tld single speed
penn dose'nt listen when it comes color
