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.
thanks

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.
