Default Tackle shop near Miami or Ft Lauderdale with stock of Okuma Makaira 50 SEA

Hi All,

After losing a large fish on a 30 series I have decided to buy two 50 series stand up rod and reels. I will be using 100/130 Braid with mono topshot and would like 35+ drag with reel price ~$600. I fish Fiji and Australian waters.

Reels I am looking at are
Makaira 50ii SEA, (Light, high tech, big drag, low gear.....Black? Will it last?)
AVET EX 50ii, (Light, big drag, colors.....service overseas?
Tiagra 50 wlrsa. (Service, Resale, loud clicker, heaps of line.....heavy?)

The specs look great on the Makaira so I really want to look at one, I have tried Bass Pro and other shops around Orlando with no luck. Heading down to Miami-Ft Lauderdale area today so hoping someone has one in stock. (I called Captain Harry no luck there either).

If anyone has seen one in stock in southern Florida please let me know where.
I was planning to just buy the Tiagra as I have the 30 and they are very common where I fish, I have no experience with either AVET or Makaira though from online reviews they sound great.

Cheers,
David

Ok thanks, I rang them and they do have the 30SEA so I will go check them.
They had a gold 50 so I can check the size at least.
Thank you for your replies.
