    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..

    Get some braid. 60 or 80 lb test. Just be careful because you can break your rod if you put too much stress on it.

    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.
