Colleagues...I am in the market for a surf casting conventional reel (baitcasting is my game). I've read with interest a host of different opinions, etc. on what is allegedly good and what to stay away from. So, on that note, I "think" I've narrowed by search down to the following: Avet SX 5.3 MC...or...Abu Garcia 6500 Blue Yonder...or... Daiwa Saltist (20 or 30)...or...Akios 656 CTM. These four frontrunners appear to have what I seek, as one who has used conventional reels before; however, its been a while, and where the mag cast is employed, this help sounds like a winner. Suggestions, opinions, or other models to consider are most welcome. Thanks for your time!!!
