    Shimano Trinidad TN12 GOLD!

    Hello Deckers, Here we have a Shimano Trinidad TN12 Gold. I know there's a lot of hype behind this reel! I've seen the following on here and decided to give it a shot. I bought it a few months ago and spooled it up with 20lb Sufix 832 Coastal camo and a short 30lb mono top shot. Finally got a...

    Got to pick up and play around with the 8 today. What a little beast!! I'm definitely getting one soon! Thanks Steve and great job Penn!! I had my reserve with that reel being so small and the gear box being huge. Still, no side wobble and lots of power!! You guys did it justice!!

    New Trinidad 40N replacement, the 2020 Ocea Jigger 4000!?

    For hand crank deep dropping over here, we like to have reels that hold at least 700yds of 50lb braid. The more line that's on the spool when your down 500-1100ft, the more you can pick up per turn.

    Avet reel for overnight party boat canyon tuna fishing east coast

    Haha, you haven't forgotten and not much has changed. Except the chunking is not what it used to be. It's a lot a lot more trolling now. Sad. But every once in a blue, with good water, you'll get a chunk bite that will last a day or two.

    Avet reel for overnight party boat canyon tuna fishing east coast

    Haha, right up my alley. Most party boats here require you to have 100yd topshot. No need for more! 100yd topshot of 80lb is what you want for most of our yellows.You could go with an HX raptor loaded with 80lb braid and the 80lb topshot.

    The Ultimate 40 pound stick UC US 80 Terminator

    The wahoo is a beast!!! My favorite deep drop rod! Handles 3lbs of lead easily, sensitive enough to detect bites, lots of backbone for big fish, yet still has forgiveness. I can't say enough about that blank. UC murdered the game on this one like many others they produce!!

    Black Penn Torque 12 (Mint)

    Hello deckers, Here we have a minty black Penn Torque 12. I bought this reel a couple of years ago. I spooled it up several different ways. It went on a few boat rides and was only used twice. Fact of the matter is, it's an absolute beast of a reel and it's extremely overkill for my purposes...

    I'm thankful for the helical gears. But there will still be a noticeable amount of performance when it comes to fishing heavier weights. See, it's a lot easier to reel in 16-24 oz weights from 150-400ft with a low gear ratio reel then it would be a high gear 6:1. Then add a fish or two on there...
