I recently purchased a 10' Tsunami Tropy Series 15-30lb, 3-6 oz Model TSTSS1002MH.

Any suggestions on a reel to match?

I surf fish once a year. I really need advice from the guys who know best.

Thanks in advance

Depends on if you use conventional or spinning. If you only fish once a year, go with the Emcast. If you wanna practice before you go, get a conventional and go with a Daiwa SLX30sha or a Penn 525. Both easy to use

Daiwa Emcast 5000 vs. the Abu Garcia Cardinal 806I or 807I

Thanks Guys.

What about the Abu Garcia Cardinal 806I or 807I instead?

I have read some decent reviews of this reel as well.

I have an abu 806i on the same rod. Only thrown it once so not yet sure. Feels real good so far. I just respooled it with 15lb mono this weekend and can't wait to get down and try her out again.

Let me know how it works out. I am thinking about picking up a reconditioned 806 for about the same price as a new emcast 5000.
