I'm putting together a jigging a combo and really don't want to spend more than 450 or so dollars doing so. I do some jigging but not that much, anyhow my only requirement is the reel has to have instant anti-reverse. The only two reels that fit the bill so far are the Trinidad and the Saltiga. Any others out there that I may be over looking?

Thanks
nate

B2-870N, B2-870 or B2-665NN, B2-665 - if you buy used Accurate B2 models - check to make sure that Accurate upgrade the shifting gear
Used Torsa reel should be good - Mr Bill use Torsa reel

Just go with a saltiga 50 save coin, proven reel thats durable and dependable. You dont need to baby it like an accurate. Upgrade with carbontex drag washers and youre all set

Look at the Saltist. You can upgrade the drag after the year warranty and the side bushing to a bearing and have almost the same thing as the Saltiga for a whole lot less.

All of them, heh everything from grouper to Tuna. Typically between 150-300 feet of water unless I catch a ride out farther.

Unless you are tangling with leviathon the 300gr will work. It is a little easier to jig with the lighter ones also.

Trinidad 40 would also fit the bill. One of my original and still favorite tuna jigging reels. I have caught everything on this reel including tuna and grouper. Great for big bluefin and yellowfin as well. Holds over 450 yards of 80lb braid incase you do hit some of those deep drops. You can prob find one on ebay for 350. Upgrade the carbontex drag if youd like and cals plate, and get up to 38-40lb of drag. It does not have the antireverse problem like the smaller trinidads.

I agree with Pete. Saltiga 40/50 or TN 40 or 40N. OJ 4000 could work as well, but itd be tougher to find it for that price.

Thanks for all the input everyone, how neccessary would be the drag and cals plate upgrade be for the 40N? The anti-reverse problems had me not so hot on these reels. What kind of drag are you guys getting with the reel out of the box?
