HI.
I got a Saltiga 40.
Makes a sweet jigging reel. 80lb braid.

2 x Saltist 30's too. one high. One low spd. Low is 50lb jigger.
High is trolling for mackerel and small Marlin.
Mate uses his 40H on rocks for Tuna. Kings, etc..with a 5120 Composite rod. Casts quite well.
But update drag after first fish..

I have a Saltist 40H I use for surf fishing, and have 300 yards of 40 lb braid with another 200 yards of 30 lb momoi diamond high catch as a topshot on it.

I then rig it up with an 80 lb shock leader, and connect that to a surf fishing shark leader (8 feet of 200 lb mono connected to coated cable and a big 14/0 circle hook).

I have it set up with the black counter weights for casting, and with a 10' rod, can fling 8 and bait a cool 80-100 yards if the wind isn't in my face.
