What’s your 100lb setup on a budget


Whats your budget?

I have no affiliation with the seller but this is about as "TURN KEY" as you can get for a decent price.

Find a Penn 15KG and get it left handed and blueprinted by Cal for $150
Really nice reels.
Cal left hands other reels as well.

Just an idea.

Cal can "left hand" machined aluminum reels like Internationals, Torques, etc. The 15KG is graphite.

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.

Interesting. He told me he could only do machined aluminum [non-levelwind] models, though within those parameters, could handle most any brand or model. Will check with him next time I talk to him, maybe something changed.

You need to provide more specifics, ie.. stand-up, rail, private boat, party boat.

My opinion, if stand-up, pick up a used reel, many can be had in the $400 range that are more than capable. Used Mak 20's come up all the time for $400-500. Avet 30 or 50 for $400 or less. As for a rod, keep your eye out for a used Seeker or Calstar in a model that fits your needs. Someone had a SS 5.5' listed on here for under $300. Would be a good stand up option.

Looking for a rail rod, you will definitely be spending more, but used deals can be had. If you are patient, a solid set-up can be had put together for $600-700.
