So I'm about to purchase some new rods and reels for long range tuna trips the first of which will be the October 80 hour with Dolphin Docks. I made up this spreadsheet of the major big game reels I believe most of us use and the ones I am interested in buying. I would like to stick with one brand for the whole set-up, or at least as far as the conventional reels go. One lighter reel for jigging BFT, a larger reel for YFT chunking and bottom fishing and finally, a spinning reel for throwing poppers. So far, I think the Accurate BX2-400, BX2-600 and Stella 1800SW are on the top of my list. Anyone have any suggestions or comments? I attached a JPG of this spreadsheet as we cant upload excel files... sorry for the bad quality. Maybe this will help others wade through the tons of reels available. If you would like the actual excel file, just pm me your e-mail and I can get it to you. If anyone has any reels they would like added to the list or corrections, pm me and I will add them and repost the list. Thanks for your help!
