TLD 25's will do it all but are a little too much reel for kings and the biggest wahoo will smoke them. If you wanted to you could get a set of shimano Speedmasters for kings and then a set of TLD 25's for the rest. Look around eBay and the for sale section here, can find some good deals.

The fish will hardly ever bite the rod/reel combo you want them to

Well that's why you tailor your technique and location

In my area kings and smaller mahi are found together in summer, often caught using the same techniques and in the same spots. Larger mahi and wahoo found together in spring. Wahoo tend to stay out at the break all year but stragglers are caught on king tackle every summer with battles usually lasting an hour or more. So it's possible to limit the dreaded biggest fish on lightest tackle which seems to happen all the time.

On a budget TLD 20 with some more cash Avet LX. These 2 have the same line capacity in real world.

Spool either with 300yds of 50lb braid and you will have room for a 300yd topshot of a quality 30lb mono.

The LX is a great king reel and with the line setup as above you will have the capacity for you random large wahoo.

I have 6 avet LX and they are setup as above and are my most used all around combos
