I have a Daiwa Magsealed BG8000 that I use for surf, pier and bank fishing. I was hoping to use this reel on my first tuna trip this year for casting lures. I ordered a Shimano Terez 7'8" for this purpose. Today I put them together and went out and did a little casting and the reel is way too big for the guides on the rod, they reduce way too fast for it to cast well. My question: Is there a better rod for this reel to be paired with or should I abandon this reel and search for a smaller one? Has anyone else had this issue with the Terez? The first guide looks like a casting guide thats been turned upside down rather than the larger spinning guides I'm accustomed to on my other spinning rods. Thanks in advance!
