What... no LP S-1200 and wishbone carbon fiber rod choice?!?!?! Thats my vote!!

A little more info will help... Where are you fishing? How deep? How much current? How big are your tiles?

We fish 500-650' in and around the Hudson Canyon.
My Tilefish reels (I have 4 of them) of choice for the past 6 seasons is a Penn Torque 200 with 65 lb braid on it. Imo, all the reels on your list are too big and heavy for my taste.
The equivalent current Penn to mine are the Torque 25's (not the 25N's, which are narrow versions of the 30's) - 375 yards of 65 lb braid (which is plenty for 700' of water) and only 19 ounces. I prefer star drag for bottom fishing.
If you want lever drag, go with an Avet MXL Raptor - it holds 450 yards of 65 lb braid and weighs 20 ounces; te regular MXL, with only 9 lbs of strike drag is a little undergunned.

Meh, a bandit reel with a mile or so of line and 100 hooks should do nicely.

I wonder how the Penn GS555 would be, maybe not enough balls... but man I really like the reels...

Of course, electrics/hydraulic...

this is how it is done...... unless you want your cranking arm to be twice as big as the other..

I wish I had gotten more footage, but I had to run the boat.
