Default Older Penn international 30ís 2speed Vs new Shimano Tyrnos 30 2 speed

Hey Guys
So I am as new as they come to Ocean sport fishing. I am setting up some rigs for the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and need a vesitile set up for stand up fishing on a 24í boat.
CR has everything from Sailfish, Marlin and Tuna. I think, and again think is the key here I had settled on new Shimano Tyrnos 30ís or 50ís???? 2 speed but now I have a friend of a friend trying to sell me some older Penn international 30ís and or 50ís.
So what should I go with? I need to buy 4-6 outfits. Thanks in advance

The Penn’s will be bigger reels slightly. That being said they are also one level up the chain, the tyrnos is a mid level reel from Shimano and the International was a top tier reel from penn.

I would go with the penns for two reasons, I think the gold anodizing will hold up a little better in the salt. And when maintained the penn is a lifetime reel, if taken care of it will outlast you. The VSW series are a little more complex than the older gen 2 TW and SW penns so there are a few extra parts with tighter tolerances but they are still very very reliable reels that are easily worked on yourself if you can turn a screwdriver.

Thank you. Knowing where Iím fishing (CR), that I will be doing stand up fishing and that I need up to 6 rigs, what would you go with? The 30ís or 50ís?

I fish in Pacific Mexico. What I use is what can be repaired locally, rather than what posters on THT say is the latest and greatest. In my case that is Avets and Penns. I have Accurates and Shimanos but they get repaired when I go to the US for the summer.

That’s a great point, both Shimanos and Penns can be repaired equally.

I like 30s but if you are going to get into big Tuna & Marlin then 50;s I would go with 2 30 outfits to work off the outriggers & 2 50s on the flatlines

Ok, like I said I am very green on Ocean fishing and even more so on trolling so I hope that you don't mind me asking some questions
So I have a 24' center console, I have outriggers,(2) down riggers and then rocket launchers along the gunnel. So I thought that I could run up to 6 lines off the boat, is that to much?

A few questions
Whats a flat line???
Why would I want to use he 30's on the outriggers?
What would you use on the down riggers?
how/where would you set the rigs up?
thanks

biggest fish is gonna hit your smallest reel.

You can run 6 lines easily.

A line strait out the back run directly off the rod tip
Why would I want to use he 30's on the outriggers?

Lines further out or further back don't necessarily attract the larger models of fish-YMMV.
What would you use on the down riggers?

Slow trolling live bait-it's easy to nab a few Bonitos & bridle rig them- may or may not use the downriggers though.
how/where would you set the rigs up?

That's the 64 million dollar question and without seeing your wake it's tough to advise the short answer is the face of a pressure wave a few waves back.

Get a mix of 30's and 50's , run 5 lines . Forget about the downrigger for now , unless you are going to use a dredge . Keep a pitch rod with ballyhoo ready for when they are keyed in to the teaser .

Keep it simple at first . What part of CR are you fishing ?

Keep it a mix , you really don't want to be catching sails , mahi and the smaller YFT on 50's . Not very sporting winching them in like that . Run your bigger lures/baits on the 50's . I'd say 4 30's and a couple 50's to start out .Use a 30 as a pitch rod .

I'll be fishing through your area in May , from Golfito back to Quepos after our Panama trip in Cebaco Bay . Going to check out the Golfito FAD's , should be an awesome trip . I'm counting down the days until I'm back in Quepos the end of this month .

I’m heading down to my house next month and will go out at least twice. Right now the bite is on!

I’ve really got no idea what used reels are worth. I know that I can buy new Penn 50vsw for $599 and new 30vsw for $500. These are the prices my friend of a friend is quoting me. It does not seem like a big difference between new and used but again I really have no idea on used values and supposedly these are in excellent condition and they are topped with mono.

50vsw 400$ each
Have two

30vsw 375$ each have two

50sw 300$ have one

30 tw 300$ have one

These are all two speeds

Have one brand new 30 not two speed just international ll. Very nice reel 275$

These are all in excellent shape about 9 plus as ten is brand new in the box
