    Hey Guys and Gals,

    Looking for a reel to pair with a UC CP 70HF (30-50). The rod feels like it can fish 50# and was planning on using it for for live bait only at heavy 40# or light 50# for SoCal Offshore and Islands and San Diego up to 4 days. I like my Penn Fathoms and was leaning towards buying a Fathom 30 LD2 but was thinking maybe there is something im overlooking? I have an Andros 12iia I could slap on it but wouldn't mind buying another reel for less than $400... Any advice or suggestions of a solid 40# to 50# reel for live bait would be great!

    Fathom 30nld2 is a good choice for being on a budget.

    I have a makaira 10 on mine and really like the combo for 40-50. Might be able to find the reel under 400 if you look around. That rod will fish 50 without a problem.
