I will be purchasing a TFX6615S for a xmas present Any input on a spinning reel. I looked at an Okuma Trio at Dicks and there isn't much room for line on that reel.This will be for bucktailing fluke and little bluies. I would like to stay under 200
Thanks

I have the Trio and it definitely has a small spool, but I use my trio 20 for fluke bucktailing on occasion and have never had a problem. The drag is super smooth on those reels. A Shimano Stradic FJ would fit your needs and if you want to go a little over budget to keep the set up super light, go with with Stradic CI4. I just got mine in the 4000 size and it's a sweet little reel. Ill be using it for light tackle stripers and fluke bucktailing next year up

Quantum exo

Go check out the quantum exo 30 spinning reel. Light carbon frame. Smooth drag and great castability. I put this thing thru the ringer this season and it exceeded my expectations.I have mine loaded with 15lb braid and had enough line to fluke off of nantucket in 100 ft of water. It had enough power to tame a 13lb blue fish and jig a 6lb tog in 60 ft of water off of orient. Great reel..

BS - there's no issue with the Trio's line capacity in any fluking scenario in which such a lite and beautifully delicate rod would be used.

You could look at the Quantum that Bill mentioned - one thing though, the load-bearing portion of the frame is carved from Aluminum, not carbon - which is probably a nice feature. Best I can tell, its like the Revo spinner from Abu, as well as the Trio from Okuma - the stem is aluminum and the gearbox is CRP (carbon reinforeced plastic). Plenty strong enough for that little stick.

Or you could go the way I did, with the terrific little Stradic CI4-3000. Shimano quality, feather-wieght, super smooth, plenty of line capacity.

Still my pick for the nicest light spinner in the $200 class.

What a sweet piece.

Or. . . .

You could go with the newest small reel on the market, specifically designed for what we do . . . the 2013 Revo Inshore spinner. Gonna come in right at that $200 threshold.

I`ve been looking at the Quantum spinners lately but cant decide which one I want for use in the western sound(blues and blacks)They have new reels coming out for 2013 in the BLU40 pts,EXO 40pts and Smoke pts. The last two have many holes and are super light but they stand up to the salt
