Ive recently seen how effective the braid option is in terms of rock fishing. Dans Skye tope comes instantly to mind and the lads seemed to be able to bang out big mackerel flapper baits with ease using this method. For next summers ventures I aim to go down this route and would like to give some serious thought to the best reel for the job. I know Dan and Damo are using the Penn reel (unsure of the name). But recently I spoke to lawsey who had bought a reel which he said would outcast the Penn. However Dan says it wont have the cranking power of the Penn. Would you long rod and fixed spool guys be kind enough to give me your thoughts on the best reel for the job listing pro and cons and saying why you believe the one you use is the best. Please could you give links to the reels on ebay or angling shop website so I can take a look and check for best prices etc. Thanks in advance.
