    Hi Iam new here and have read alot of post on this site. I have been looking for a new reel for a 10' surf rod that I bought this weekend. Its a medium action pole with lure wt.4-8 oz. Also like to use it bottom bumping for snapper and grouper. Iam hope to find a reel willing to do both but, right now ill take a surf reel over a bottom bumping reel. Iam also trying to stay under 200$ beans. Please let me know if there something a little more worth it.

    Thanks for the help.

    I agree. Although a bit more than what you are willing to spend, I use the Saltiga Surf and I think it's great for that application. Light, strong, casts far.

    Thank for the info, I ended up with a cabo 70 that was on sale for 135$. Just couldnt pass it up. Know iam looking for sum braid to put on it thats suitable for surf and bottom bumping for snapper and trigger fish. Any brands out there other than PP?

    Thank again
