Recently went down to a few tackle shops, asking for advice from the sales men, but i came back more confused then before.
I was trying to purchase a set up(rod & reel), hopefully within a budget of $300-$400.
Target Fish: Trevally, Tenggiri, Tunas, Amberjacks.....hopefully a small sailfish.
The first shop I went to suggested a Shimano 4000(not sure which model) - $300
The second.........a Fishwalk 5000 or something - $250/$300
The third..........a Daiwa for only $150 and a rod at about $100.
The prices, brands and quality seem to be very different.
As i am very new, I have no idea if the stores were trying to push a certain brand, or if any of them were genuine.
Would love to hear more valuable inputs from you guys.
PS: Any comments on the Daiwa Freams 4000? And maybe a rod to match?
