I suggest a Shimano Tekota 600 - I have used it in India for sea fishing and caught a sizeable barracuda without any hassle, besides a variety of sea fish in Australia.

It would also be a good reel to use for mahseer fishing with bait( it will have adequate line capacity if spooled with 40 lb. braid).

Another aspect (that I prefer ) is that it has a line guide inbuilt, which makes life easier when reeling in as you do not need to lay the line across the spool using your fingers/thumb.

It is not a very expensive reel, as well.

Regards,
Kingfish

There is a large outlet in Auburn that sells boating/fishing/camping gear and it will be very easy for your brother to pick up the reel of your choice from them.

Sorry, I cannot name the establishment due to forum rules.

Have you consider the Torium series? The 16 or 20 size is good and is friendly to the pocket too ...

This rod is for Spinning setup and the reel (tekota and torium) that was recommended to you is a overhead setup.

a overhead rod usually will have a trigger below for better griping

example

maybe you can consider this rod

Deepak,

If you wish to troll using your present telescopic rod, you should get a spinning reel in size 6000.However, your present rod is a bit too long for trolling.

Again, there are a multitude of choices .. I use a Shimano Stradic 8000
(same as a 6000 but with more line capacity) for spinning and also for trolling.

This reel can be picked up by your brother in Sydney for under A$300
and comes with a spare spool (useful as a backup with mono or braid).

Furthermore, Shimano reels bought in Australia are covered by their 10 year warranty, which should give you peace of mind.

Hope you are not too confused.

Kingfish
