Hello all. I went out with my two sons 7 and 9 yrs old this past week out of Santa Barbara on the Coral Sea. They had to use rental rods as the water we fished was about 300 ft, using 12-16 oz. sinkers. For their first time using a conventional reel they killed it! (Jigmaster and Warfare). I want to buy them something of their own. Any preference as to level-wind or non? Size, and so forth?
