Older Penn reels that have been tuned up will work good, TLDs if you like a lever drag. A little backing along with 300 yds of 40-65 lb. braid should work for just about anything you want to pull. I've been having alot of fun using my jigging rods for the way back lines, pulling tomics with inline sinkers. Power pro is ok but there are better braids available, color doesn't really matter imho. TLD 25s on 5-5 to 6-6 rods will pull your umbrellas or heavy mojos with trailers just fine. Good luck!
