Good Spinning for Schoolies

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!

here is what happened to my Fin-Nor OFS95 on a barely keeper AJ, Fin-Nor said that they had a problem with early models and the thickness of the gear, but my advice to you SpecialK, after trying to do the same thing you are doing (buying a cheap spinner) get a TwinSpin, Stella, or Saltiga and you'll have a reel that will last you a lifetime and your grandchilden will more than likely be fishing with it.

I thought the Avets had a "cast control" which I thought was similar to a bait caster in one way or another... Is that not so???????

no, Avets do not have a Cast Control, I would like to see a defination on the Cast Control on an Avet
