New to spin gear beyond elementary freshwater stuff. Idea is to have two rods for surf fishing in Baja Sur, one for small metal jigs and poppers (sub 40g) and one for larger poppers/stickbaits/etc. and two for tuna casting up here in Socal, again light poppers on one and midsize lures on the other. So I bought an 8k HG SWB and a 14k XG SWC, along with a 10k spool with the plan to use the 8k and 10k spools in Baja and the 10k and 14k spools here in CA, loaded with 40lb, 60lb, and 100lb JBHC in order of increasing spool size. I'm now not sure I really want to go with HC at all, so I'm curious to hear all sorts of input as I don't have experience with spin gear to know what all the ins and outs are beyond the ease of casting wind ons and the looming issue of wind knots.
