Help me pick a reel (or two)
My buddy bought me two Shakespeare BigWater Rods model # BTW 56 SURR for Xmas and now I need to find two good (yet affordable) reels to mount on them. The rods are really heavy and have 50-130lb recommended line size stamped on the side. I'm thinking I could go with two TLD 30II's or maybe 50II's but I really don't have much experience with tackle this size so hopefully you guys can help me out.
I can get the 50II's for $320.00 a piece so if possible I would like to keep the price around $350.00 per reel.
What would you guys recommend?
