I have been thinking about buying an but had thoughts about other options (like ). I am hoping to get one reel for throwing bait from surf (and if I can throw lures with the same reel, I know its too much an ask, all the better). What would be your suggestion ? I am planing to spend not more than 175USD on this.

TIA,
Sabarish

Abu 6500 is a nice reel. You can also have a look at Avet Sx MC. I think it has better drag than Abu, But abu is more customizable, you can upgrade the drags and do all sorts of things (mods) to it.

The Saltist overhead reel (baitcaster) has a very good reputation for being a
solid,quality reel amongst Aussie fishos.

Apparently, stocks run out as soon as they reach the shops here.

I do not own one of these so I cannot vouch for them, however I suggest
you look up reel comparisons on the internet to get a better idea before
purchase.

Good luck.

I just stumbled on this thread which I have started a while ago. I was too impatient to get one good casting reel and was about to order a saltist when I heard a local in mumbai had sealine X 50SHA in stock. I would have really preferred a 30 or even 20 but I was too eager to get hold of one reel as I was in the vicinity of beach couple of weeks before. Ordered along with a daiwa accudepth pe type 8 line to go with. I initially spooled 20lb mono to test as I was not at all familiar with distance casting and a reel without levelwind. Though I was not able to try it on the beach (as the delivery was delayed by a stupid courier service called 'trackon'), with the 9ft rod I have and around 80grams of lead for weight and every time I cast had very bad thumb burn and/or birds nest. The burning was too bad that I was scared to thump the spool while casting.

I have been curious, what are you, baitcaster's regular surf rig setup ? I like bait fishing and not much of a plug thrower (mainly because I have never tasted success with a plug yet to get addicted).

PS: I have heard from a friend that braid will reduce the thumb burn unlike mono. Fact ?

Hi kryptoz.

One cuesstion of which line you whon the reel for surf casting, which diameter of line you ussing in mm not in lb. you whon fast ratio or slow ratio that is acording to the type of fishes or how you go tu ussing this reel. Surf Casting, on beach, rock fishing, sea spigning, boat fishing, light trolling, etc. for aster not have any problems.

For my the best is Daiwa but Shimano have also nice reels.

Regards.

Hi Alberto,

Thank you for your suggestions. I thought the PE line 85lb, though its an overkill, thought it would be close to a 20lb mono's diameter and since its thicker a bit, it would help the line not digging in while winding it back. I have a non levelwind reel which I am new to. I am going to use this mostly on surf/beach. From rocks also maybe, I am not sure, maybe would switch to mono for that. I am not planning to throw plugs as I am mostly a lazy bait fishing fan!

I am planning to buy a 11 ft to 13ft casting surf rod to pair with the sealine 50. I was thinking of the cheaper sealine surf/penn torque surf. Any help/advice is highly appreciated !

Warm regards,
Sabarish

Hi kryptoz.

For ussing lines more heavy that 15 or 18 lb 30 or 35 mm I recomended to you reel whit slow ratio not more that 5.1/1 becouse the rotor can have problems in the future when you stack in the rocks or stop te biges fishes can braeck eassy the smmal rotor in the sistem and for bigest efforts.

have many models in the marked whit more capàcity and slow ratio similars to boat reels but for surf casting the difference are the tipe of spool need to be casting instead of boat but the body of reel same as boat example Seagate E of daiwa or Exceler E this reels in spain market tthe cost are arround 185 to 280 € depending sice I recomended minimun 5000 or 5500 sice 6000 is for 230mts of 50mm or 30 to 40 lb depending manufacture. The first one have one nice drag incredible can stop all fishes and weights.

Regards.

That is why I suggest that people buy a threadline reel rather than an
overhead.

The latter is just too complicated to manipulate, even for those who are
familiar with such reels.

I am just wondering, does the reel not have a backlash reducing setup?
This usually is a magnet system which enables the spool speed to be adjusted... tighten to stop overruns and lose distance or loosen and
risk birds' nests.

Not for me.

hamour, thanks for the reply. Do you own a penn torque ? Any issues faced ? What is the reel that you paired with it ?

Thanks.
