The Okuma Salina or VS (if you can spend the extra cash), are good reels for saltwater spinning.

I use those for spinning and inshore trolling in Cuba with no probs.

No need to upgrade parts, the stock drag is quite powerful (all models have a max drag over 20lb, even the small 30 size) as it is.

The drag sounds loud enough (for me at least).

Regarding the rods, the Berkley was not spinner friendly, so I sold it; the other one is a modified Shimano Catana 20/30 and works good.

I also use the Offshore Angler Inshore Extreme (up to 3oz./30lb).

I know, I fish in a unconventional way :D

In my next trip I will try to land a 40+lb YFT on a Salina 30 loaded with 30lbs Power Pro.
