    Can anyone help me pick a good spinning reel for a OTI 600 G3 ROD. I fish off the coast of NC and Va. Targeting amberjack and tuna. I looked at the saragosa 1800 and the stellas, but not sure which stella would be good for what were catching in my area. any help would be great.

    Go with the 20000 FA or SW Stella.

    i used both stella 20000fa and saragosa 18000. both worked well for aj/tuna. the stella 8000fa seemed a little small with the 600g. just my opinion. also i was happy with the saragosa. but when 180 pound tuna are being caught right next to me i was feeling a little outgunned. just the drag though. that being said Kil fought a Giant tuna a few days ago on the saragosa 18000 and didnt have any problems. I am not the fisherman he is so i like the insurance of having the stellas drag.
