    I am looking to get a chunking reel. I wann be able to use it on PB's so having enough mono is a concern. What do I buy a 30VSW?50VSW Tiagra 30,50,50Wlrsa?

    Or Penn's VSX series? I am lost?

    vsx series....better drags.

    no need to run all mono. put 500yds braid backing then mono on top.

    the 50VSX would be perfect for PB out here
    would be good for swords and tuna
    i would get that or the avet SDS for PB

    if i was fishing 6packs i would get the 16 or maybe the 30
    but i have the tiburon SST seems to work well:D

    for Chunking forget both. Go with an Avet SDS for PB chunking. Put a spectra backing, and a long 200-250yard topshot and you should be set to go
