fireline for fixed spool/eggbeater whiplash for free spool/overhead trolling in a yak? use what ya got - trolling in a boat most would use mono (assuming it's stickfaces or tuna you are targeting) I have used powder pro in the past - never again. Berkley or stren for the silly string, JB hollow for ...

Looks to be a nicely spec'd reel for the price (given it's a dirty little eggbeater :lol: ) I rate Daiwa more than the overpriced Shimano equivalent.

What's it's future role or are you just upgrading gear?

define cheap ?? all depends what sort of depth and target species you will be targeting. Fin nor OFC30L will suit upto 150-200m deep after that you might be stretching it a little. The L is 4.9:1, H is 6.2:1 I prefer the 4.9 or 5.1 for jigging/bigger fish Marquesa MA30II will suit the 300m+ depths, ...

I use to berley and tie it off to my yak but I had it suspended by it's own buoy and the "rope" tied to my yak was made of thin bungy. I also use metal pots/cage dunno how much off a difference that actually makes.

I wonder if the person has "converted" to sp or metal yet :lol:

unless it's the narrow reel, I wouldn't bother = overkill. I'd use the 16 or 20 reel with 50lb line @ 40% drag = still more than enough drag in a yak

Look at the Fin-nor Offshore 16 or 20L ideal really. I'll put the 20L on my big Kilwell (400g) rod an spool it with JB 60 hollow 600yds.

Yep, some good fish in that area at times. I had some smart arse in a yellow prowler tell me, him and his two yak mates were catching fish all over the place. I didn't have the heart to pop his little bubble by telling him I had a couple of fish that were around the double digit mark, pulled from wh...

They're cheap, made from lunchbox material and are generally pretty slow going. Do yourself a favour and buy a proper fishing vessel made from glass. Pm KayakPro a.k.a. Shamus, he sells one of the proper brand/type that are available for purchase. You won't ever look back on your purchase, nor feel ...

Berkley Fireline for fixed spool (eggbeater) and Berkley Whiplash for Overheads. Fixed spool reels suck period. I use a Shimano Citica 200E (US$100 on ebay) on a 6-8kg Catana rod. Buy the Curado if you like spending money and having the latest bling. When my Okuma Citrix arrives, I'll match it to Ke...

I do it similar to the imp, except I use a vice and an old rod clamped to the bench to hold the reels as neither of them complain when only halfway through the task :lol:
