Need a new reel for my mojo 10'6. It was pair with a vs200, just got a century built which the vs will be on. Never own a Daiwa, any suggestion? Budget is 350, was thinking saragosa or new penn z 704. Reel has to be somewhat okay with little sand. Easy to maintain, possibly the option to go bailess

I Like the 706Z I own a few, and they have served me well for many years.

Meets every requirement in your last sentence. Plus braid friendly and no mystery bail closings.

It is the same as 20yrs ago because Penn is finally learning after many many years that you can't fix stupid. I would buy new.

Personally I would go with the Saragosa. I own one of the old ones and am planning on getting one of the new ones. For a Mojo with the lowrider guides, I would go with a taller spool and less diameter (Saragosa) rather than the pancake spool of the 706Z. The line lay of the Saragosa will help with the longer casting and these reels were designed for braid. Everybody I know with a 706z has problems with any kind of braid except fireline (not a true braid), because the 706 reels were designed before braid came out, and do not have the proper line lay!

Some other reels that will suite the task are the Shimano Stradic, Daiwa Saltist, and you can even get a really nice JDM reel designed for casting for within your budget. I used to swim with my Stradic before I got my VS and it spent as much time underwater as it did above water. Its still alive and kicking, you can see what it did this season in Jaybass' video because I lent it to him for the season when his battle crapped out. The Saragosa is a step in the right direction above the Stradic and I have no doubt that it can handle the task. I use mine on the North Shore so I cannot attest to its capabilities in the water, but I have no doubt it can handle the task.
