What reel to match with shimano revolution coastal 1302

 Hi all, just a quick question. I've just ordered a 13ft shimano Revolution coastal 1302 rod. Now we're heading up to shark bay for a two week trip and just after some suggestions for what reel to match with this rod to have a decent crack at some land based fishing from point/cape peron?

 10-20kg line weight

70-140g lure weight

cheers for any suggestions!

What's your budget mate?

Penn Spinfisher's are a fairly low budget, commonly recommended beach reel, between 8500-10500 probably. Higher end you could go for a Saragosa 8000 or something.

Really depends on how much use you think you'll get out of it, and how much you wanna spend. Whatever you decide though, make sure you hit a tackle shop that stocks them and try the reels on the rod before you buy if that's an option. (although probably buy some tackle there if you're gonna buy the reels online afterwards)

 Probably looking at spending $300-400, hopefully pick up a special on something. It'll get regular use between that and the boat if the reel could be suited to both

 If u want to use it off the boat a saragosa of a suitable size. If mainly off the beach a thunnus ci4 baitrunner. Baitrunners come into their own off the beach but i dunno if they will take winding lead off the bottom all day.
