Recommended reel for a full core

Recommended Posts

Folks;

 

Looking to upgrade my reels for two full cores + 100 yards of 20LB braid.  What is recommended for this application, & why?

 

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

 

John

Any Okuma series 45 will do it

After fishing okuma convectors (w/ upgraded drags) and saltists side by side, I would def say the saltist is a superior reel, but man I hate that line counter positioning!

Convectors if you wanna stay under $100, saltist if not.

I agree with the above statement about the positioning of the line counter but for Leadcores you don't need them. Have Saltist on all my cores. Very smooth & high speed!

Saltist 50 and be done. You don't need line-counters for junk rods, so toss out the akward line-counter position argument and they are the best reel you can buy for what we do. Buy it once and be done rather than a competitors reel you have to put drags in. We're running Saltist on our charter boat that are 7/8 seasons old with more use than most rec anglers will put on them and they are still awesome with little to no maintenance ever done on them.

YT;  Is this the Diawa reel you are recommending? STTLW50HA

 

Thanks,

That is the Non-Linecounter version but other than yet, yes that is the reel they are referring too. The linecounter version is STTLW50LCHA.
