which reel would you prefer to bottom fish with for sea bass, lings, togs, etc... by the way im lookin at the daiwa saltist thats a LW and is hi-spd.
Ditto on customer service from Shimano...best in the business in my opinion!!!I have the following:
Saltist 40 EH
Shimano Tekota 800
Shimano Torium 30 & 15
Saltist is ok, but I like the Torium better for deep dropping... Lots of line capacity, fast retrieve and smooth drag and gears.
I use my Tekotas when I want to winch a big boy.. A little slower retrieve, but lots of power...
If you have any further questions ask away... I guess I'm just a Shimano fan, I like their customer service too....
