I was thinking some where in between a Trinidad 16 or a 20 what do you guys think. Im going to use it for light jigs and also flyline in the channel islands. I'm open to other reels tho

16. 20 too big. I’d prefer a 16n.

I like the 16... 16n to narrow for me. I don’t have big hands but feel the Narrow smaller sized reels are too Narrow. I will fish narrow in larger size reels Accurate 500N 600N. Take a look at the Accurate Valiant 400 go single speed for 30 lb. I really like them 400 single speed for 30 lb and 2-speed for 40 lb. I just started fishing them last year and like them

It’s nice to cast big swim baits to flyline a chovie. I use it on a SSR 80H and 810. If your gonna throw light jig or plastics a lot go star drag. I fish bait and big plastic with that set up

Try Eric’s Tackle he usually has a decent selection and always willing to set you up right. I go through him for all my tackle
