If you have your heart set on

If you have your heart set on a Daiwa you should check out the Catalina as well. Based on the reviews below and taking price into account I rate the 2008 SW-A model Stella ahead of the Penn Torque then the Catalina. The new Saltiga and also the new Stella are far too expensive to warrant the purchase considering the quality you can get for the above three "second tier" reels.

I have an old model Saltiga, a couple of now old model Stella's and my brother has the Torque 5 and all are brilliant reels.

 If it helps go to the lists

 If it helps go to the lists section. The score for the new Saltiga is one reason why I don't think it is the best value and also why the Penn Torque should be considered.

in any event you will not be disappointed with any of those 4 reels.

On that rod most people would go with 5000-6500 size daiwa. 

Id run minimum 50lb and a 4500 or 6500 would be the go. The new Catalina's are excellent and I believe you can find the old model catalina for $450 in some stores.

 

08 Stella would also be a good buy

 8000 Stella would be a better popper reel.

 

for jigging the action comes from the rod and if your fishing in greater than 40-50m you will definitely want a lower gear ratio, higher gears means much harder to wind and you'll feel it pretty quickly. From memory the Stella 8000 is 5:6:1 so if you were going to go down that path you'd want PG model with lower ratio. I've got the catalina and its been faultless and I've used a Stella 8000 SW PG and was also faultless but the stell slightly nicer to use but performance wise they are both excellent. It's worth mentioning that if you wanted the catalina you can also get them in a higher gear model as well.

 Catalina is 4:1:1

stella 8000sw 5:6:1

stella 8000SW PG 4:9:1

 

Any top end Shimano & Daiwa you won't be disappointed.
