    hey I'm looking to pick up a UC Raptor and I'm not sure what kind of reel to put on it. I'm planning on making it somewhat of a rail rod because I'm not the biggest dude.

    Got a brand new UC Raptor last month and added a JX Raptor to fish on it. I have it backed with 60# Threadlock and plan on using 50# topshots for yo yoing and throwing wahoo irons. I’ll be out in about 10 days for 10 days and I expect it’ll get a lot of use.

    I have a Okuma Andros 16ll loaded with 80# spectra and 80# top shot. It’s paired on a CX80 raptor that’s Gonna kill yellowfin at the Guadalupe or lower banks. Beast of a combo!!

    I’m planning on it mainly being used as a 50# outfit. You could go 40-60, but I have those covered already.

    Currently using a penn fathom 40ld2 on the Raptor , eventually I’ll be getting a penn 12 Visxs, I also have a cx80 Raptor , had that paired with a peen 16visxs But that reel is more suited for a 80 -100 lb rod

    I had a 3 speed HX Raptor on my 7'6" but moving the HX to a Centaur and most likely putting a 40NLD on it for 60lb bait.

    I've got what Shon has, except mine's a 7'6" Raptor - love the combo for 80#, although there's many who might feel it's a better 60# setup. Killed a 164# bft on it last fall and really liked how it felt. Am a big fan of the reel, although it needs a handle upgrade (I put a Makaira handle on it) to really feel comfortable on big fish...

    I've gone with the Penn Torque 40NLD2, but also would like to give the new Okuma Makaira 15TSEa a try once it comes out.
