Hey guys...

I just picked up a Phenix Inshore Assassin.. I've heard lots of great things about Phenix but this is the first for me.
It's a PSW866L - ISA line rating 8-25. What reels do you guys pair these bad boys up with?
And what fish have you killed with em.

Thanks in advance!

That's an awesome rod. I'd go with a curado 300 e or ej. I know there was some talk on this forum of shimano releasing a new one soon.

I took a Curado 300 ej out for a demo from tackle warehouse. I really liked it! What's the difference between the e and the ej?

Lews BB2 Inshore or an Okuma Komodo would be pretty killer depending on what size reel you prefer.

The new Revo Toro Beast or a Lexa/Curado/Komodo. All of them are excellent. The Abu Garcia is the #1 option.

I have a Lexa 300 on my ISA and love it! It's bass and small yellow slayer. I do hear good things about the Curado 300EJ but as mentioned above you can't really go wrong with either the Lexa/Revo/Curado/Komodo and the Lews Kevin mentioned.
