    I like the Daiwa Saltist it has a little fast retrieve then the Tekota The deepest I fish is out in Orient in 100 to 150 feet of water three way bucktailing for stripers and never a problem here is a link to the reel I have found my local shop Cow Harbor will match any price I find online

    Hi. I'm kinda of a newbie. I saw in a post you used to use the Tekota 500. I just got that reel mounted to a 6'6 Trevala. It's wound with 40lb braid. The Travala is a jigging rod. I assume this setup is mostly used for jigging (diamonds?) off a boat in say 30-60 ft of water? Does that sound right? I went on a wreck trip in 200 ft of water and took my rod/reel. My arms were burning pulling up 3-5lb sea bass turning 120+ turns of the crank. Do i need to get in shape and lift weights or was i asking too much of the reel? What would you suggest are the best ways to use this combo? Thank you... steve
