    I am trying to help a buddy with a new jiggin reel. He is considering a BX2-500N or bx2-600N. What else is out there that competes with these reels on size, weight, quality, drag? He knows he wants two speed, semi-narrow, leight weight, and drag over 20lbs. It will be used for AJs, grouper, tuna in the gulf.

    I told him just to get the accurate but he wants to weigh all the options first.

    Tiagra 12's??
    If he can get his hands on one have him look at these.
    I have a couple that are lighter and smaller than my Torque 300's.
    Low 2nd gear, 33lb posted drag, I set them with 20-22lb drag.

    No accurate experience for me to reference to though.
