Hi Guys,

Need some suggestions. I've got a Diawa EmcastPlus 6000 reel. It looks like a bit heavy for spinning all day. Can this reel be used for surfcasting If yes then can you please suggest what spec rod should I match it with out of these below?


BERKLEY PRO SELECT
PSS802MHA 8.0” 2 MH 17-40
PSS902MHA 9.0” 2 MH 17-40
PSS1002MHA 10.0” 2 MH 17-40

ABU GARCIA CONOLON PREMIUM
CNS802MHA 8.0” 2 MH 10-25

ABU GARCIA TOURNAMENT SPINNING
TS802HA 8.0” 2 H 17-40
TS902HA 9.0” 2 H 17-40
TS1002HA 10.0” 2 H 17-40

ABU GARCIA NITROUS ROD
NTS802MHA 8.0” 2 MH 10-25
NTS902MHA 9.0” 2 MH 10-30
NTS1002MHA 10.0” 2 MH 10-30

And can you guys please suggest specs for spinning rod/reel to target MJ's and Groupers?

Many thanks in advance.

-Inder

Inder, IMHO none of these would be ideal. I'm using a Bimini Bay Tsunami Trophy Series Surf Spinning Rods, 11 foot. Get it from the US, well worth it.

I Would any day go for the 10' or higher rod as with a heavier reel it is easier to cast with a longer rod. I have a Saltstriker which is 27.9 oz in weight so I use a Kingkat 10' rod with it, and it does pretty well.

So either go for:

BERKLEY PRO SELECT
PSS1002MHA 10.0” 2 MH 17-40

ABU GARCIA TOURNAMENT SPINNING
TS1002HA 10.0” 2 H 17-40

ABU GARCIA NITROUS ROD
NTS1002MHA 10.0” 2 MH 10-30

Cheers,

Chris

Tsunami Rods are anytime better. If you have a option of DAIWA EMCAST 9" or more go ahead its a good rod I use it myself. The reason being the guide exactly the same was a tsunami like 2 arms supporting from down and one from top heres the link to these rods.

Its my personal pref, finally its your call.

penn Spinfisher or penn power stick surf rods will be best bang for money.

BTW, I just landed a 36 LB Catla on a USD 21 rod.. 3 years old and have taken lot's of big MJ, groupers, Queenfish, barracuba, barramundi, rohu. mrigal...... Mangur, and now a Catla.. if I was you, I'll put my money on Spinfisher 10 ft 2 to 5 Oz lure weight 15 to 30 LB. light weight and will cast like a dream.

if u could look at the daiwa beef stick i am sure u wont be disappointed. it is heavy though. the 9 ftr is rated from 2-6 oz.
the rod cant be cast all day as in the one recommended by santosh. i start getting sweaty after about 50 casts or so.

Ditto I would also suggest the penn spinfisher two pc or { pure fishing } Berkley 5000 surf series telescopic rods, they are very light but equally strong
keep on casting from dawn till dusk :wink:
