Advice on a New Reel

805 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  raybo
I am looking to buy a new reel (conventional) that I can do some inshore bottom fishing with and also use for throwing chunks off the beach if I like. I would prefer a levelwind-- Is a lower gear ratio better??? What is the difference in lever drag to star?? Some reels people have suggested= Newell 229--Penn International 975--Diawa Grand wave 30. I would put it on a 30-50lb rated rod and would use it on a private and party boat. Any suggestions would help a lot. Thanks

New reel

Thanks for the input Captainlarry84!!I think I may go with a Newell after all, but just looked at the Avet SX model and may pick that up first to use on private boat--The Newell may have to wait. Thanks again for the help!!
