I am making an offshore sea bass trip next week and I need to match up my 8' stick with a compatible reel. Sizewise, the Newell 533 is a perfect match, and it is well balanced weightwise. Also it is a fast 5.5:1 gear ratio. However, some guys tell me to go with the Senator 113H, which is considerably slower at 3.3:1 or so, but it has alot of torque and cranking power. Is it more advantageous to go with speed or torque in the deeper water? I am hoping to get some feedback from you guys who have made these trips, and get some experienced opinions. Thanks and tight lines!!
