Pick what test line you want and make sure the reel holds 250-300 yards of it (more for big sharks, like 400+ yards). But generally speaking, spinning reels anywhere from 5000 (if they’re tough) to 8000 size. Conventionals: 6000 to 7000 size (Abu/Akios). Not sure about other conventional reel brand size designations... 15-30?

I guess size 6000 or 6500 spinning reel is ideal for 12 foot rod....👌:unsure:
I was gonna add corbina, grouper, and rays.
But thanks. Do you guys also know any surf rods that are better than the one I chose but in my budget? Any good brands for the reels?

Just get a Penn Pursuit 6000 and call it a day. But make sure you get a “spinning” rod... not “casting”. The guides on a casting rod would not be suitable for a spinning reel.
