Gentlemen,

I'm still puttin together gear for an 8 dayer this summer and need some opinions regarding which reel would be your go to 50lb bait outfit. I have it narrowed down to three reels ( International 12VSX, Avet HX II, and Accurate BX II 600). Which would you prefer and why? I recently bought a 16VSX for my 60-80lb outfit and thought I might try something different, hence the question. Thx in advance!!

Thanks for the suggestion. I took a look at their line up and it appears as though Okuma makes some pretty impressive reels at a great value to boot. Best part is they are in my area so I'm going to pay them a visit to check em out. Thanks again!
