I have all my fishing knowledge and experience based in surf fishing. I recently bought a Storm Gomoku Kaiten as a bait rod to play seabass/kbl from shore.
However, I understand that it is fundamentally a micro jigging rod. I consulted a friend who does speed jigging and he said to find a high gear ratio reel to avoid exhaustion and suggested the Shimano Twinpower.
I cannot justify spending that much money already having spent some money on a couple of surf equipment.
Friend also mentioned the Stradic Ci4 didn't hold up during a jigging trip.
Anyone have any recommendations for the best value for money reel that can hold? Looking for a size 3000 spinning reel. More suggestions/advice the better.
