New member here. I have a bunch of reels I seldom use and looking to downsize but keep what would be necessary for a 7-10 day Island trip I hope to take in the future. I fish charter boats out of San Diego, 2-4 day trips and go to Palmas de Cortez every couple years. I have added a some AVET Raptors to my collection and love them. Here is what I have: Daiwa Saltist 20, Trinidad 16N, AVET JX 6/4, AVET JX Raptor, Tiagra 20II, TLD20II, Penn Int 16S Cals, Penn Int 30S, Avet HXJ Raptor, Avet HXW Raptor, Avet EX50. Question is.... now that I have the Raptors and plan on getting a HX Raptor, along with a MXL Raptor, and maybe a MXJ Raptor or G2, should I get rid of the Tiagra and TLD20II? Should I keep the Blueprinted 16S and the 30S. I know alot of you guys love Penns but to me the are big and bulky. Thoughts?

The raptors are fantastic and the hxw will easily fish 100 lb. the blue printed 16 is a super 80 lb setup and a blueprinted 30 will do 100/130 lb fine. The tld and tiagra could go and buy some seeker black steel or super seeker rods and your set for life
