I have a few gift cards from my birthday and am going to treat myself to an electric reel. Going to use it for halibut and deep water lings a few times a year and maybe black cod if there is any good spots that someone could share. Does the 500 work or should I go with the 750?

Ha! Gotcha....Just using #80 braid and an old ugly stick. Do they have the same motor and one has more buttons and line capacity?

I have a few seaborg 500fe, they they changed them to blue and renamed tanacum. Which I have also. I think the seaborgs are built tougher. I have 750s too which are awesome. But the footprint of the 500s is desired. Ebay has a few from Japan for 300 or so. I trust the Japanese

I use 30# and 8’/9’ rods. I can get deeper with less lead.

We use two 500’s and 3 750’s and seem to be same motor.

80# I would go 750.

I have the 1000 and use 80lb Hollow core power pro, Mine also doubles as a Kite rod during Tuna season. I have not looked into the functions on the others. but all the same price. I really like the Jigging function.

Thanks for the input. Going to go with the 750 and #65 power pro. Bummer thing is that Sportco, where all my gift cards are from, is out till June. Going to have to reel them up the old fashion way for another year. Thanks again.
