New to this forum and have enjoyed reading your comments.
I'm visiting Cuba to take on those big Tarpon (100lb+), Amberjacks, Snapper, Trevally etc....
I'm new to using big reels and braid and need help please!
Have researched the reels above and can't decide which to go with...or which braid to use!!!
There seem to be so many pros and cons to each reel and the different types of braid?
I will mainly be casting poppers and plugs but may do some trolling and bottom fishing. Budget of around $250 but am happy spending less !
Saragosa 8000 sounds reliable but maybe not good so for casting lures with braid?
Spheros 14000 sounds like a bargain and ideal for casting lures...but is it really?
Cabo 80 seems like a good all-rounder but is big and heavy and maybe not as reliable as the others?
Cabo 70 - ??
As for braid!!....Power Pro, Spectra, Soft, Hard, Coated, large dia, small dia......WTF!!!!
