    Yo-yo or surface irons? Or both? Maybe some jig specifics?

    Pretty sure he's not asking about a yoyo reel for a 10 ft glass rod.
    Newells and Trinidads are popular surface iron reels but I've been on the big baitcaster trend lately. Lexa 400 HD's and/or the Tranx 500's are specifically built for inshore/offshore fishing and are pretty fun to throw iron with.

    I have that same rod and use an Avet JX Raptor and love it. It allows me to run a 100 yard topshot of 40 or 50 # with plenty of 65# braid backing in case I get into something a bit larger. Used it all of last year and it has landed many YT, BFT, and YFT.

    Yeah, but this IS Bloody Decks. Stranger stuff HAS happened here.
    First two suggestions were 30lb class reels (15lb stock drags). Dude has a 40lb capable stick. Hence questions about what jigs he wants to chuck.

    I'd say a Daiwa SL-X40SHA or SL-X50SHA may be a good option. They are reasonably priced, pull off wicked casts right out of the box, and have a free floating spool. Size depends on what line and jig he hopes to use, but both rate at only 17.6 lbs max drag in stock form.

    One of my buddies told me to not throw iron on less than 40#, so i was aiming for that pound range.

    40 is the norm and what works best Imo. 30 is good for lighter setups, which is what I like to use on personal boats. I run a Lexa, straight braid with a short fluoro topshot on an 8' Inshore rod. Casts ridiculously far.
