What reel should I get

Hey guys,

i was wanting a new spinning combo for offshore fishing in Perth. I usually target dhuies, snapper, tuna and the odd kingy or sambo that comes past. I want the combo mainly for jigging and bottom bouncing but maybe for a bit of trolling as well. Price range is around $550. Any suggestions?

 hi mate , a decent all round trolling and bottom outfit is something like a shinano tcurve 200 spin with an 8000 or 10000 Saragosa with 50lb braid , if the budget is too tight maybe exchange the Saragosa for a new spheros of similar size. Cheers

Na mate, I reckon they're pretty average! Main drive gear looks like it's cast along with the old hex drive on the handle instead of the screw in type. Just my opinion of course.

Just wondering if anyone on here has a Saragossa 8000/tcurve 200 spin combo they want to get rid of?? Just thought I would check before I purchased new.
