Good Spinning for Schoolies

7367 Views 55 Replies 21 Participants Last post by  awesum
Trying to decide whether I should buy a new spinner for the January Tuna Trip.
Currently using an Okuma Epixor EB80.
Will this reel handle YFT at all?
Really thinking of getting into a Penn 950/9500. Any opinions of both would be great!
Even a some uprgrades to my reel would work???
Otherwise I basically need a rig that will do the trick!

levelwind conventional reel is not a really good choice for offshore applications in my opinion. With the use of spectra line and mono topshot or wind on non level wind will be a much better choice.

I have use Trinidad 40 for top water for years, it work as good if not better than spinner.
