Default Reasonable wire line combos?

I'm looking for a reasonable price on a 50# or 80# class wire-line combo for offshore trolling for wahoo, tuna, etc.

I know Capt Harry's of Miami sells some combos that look like a decent deal, but does anyone else have any sources? (I'm looking for a rod, reel and wire line for under $500 for use in a stand-up fashion.)

Also, is Monel preferable to stainless steel, and if so, why? Stainless looks cheaper.

Would appreciate any tips, tricks, techniques from anglers who have used such tackle, since I have not. Thanks.

The only other idea I came up with was TLD 50's....used.

But I would go with the Senator 9/0. It doesn't have the same spool as the 113 HSP. But it will work if you strip the wire off every season and clean it.
