Have you seen the price tag on one of those things!? No need to spend that much in my opinion.

I use a shimano ocea gt rod with a Saragossa 2500 but if I had the money and it pains me to say it I would buy a saltiga. This year a game boat out of bermi got smashed on 2 Stella’s reels could not handle the fish but they were big fish well over the norm.

If you need to stop a train you'll need a 50 or 80 wide

ive got confidence in myself and my technique :-D ,
id rather a spin outfit any day than an overhead.

reason i suggested to OP to stick with overheads is because he already has them.
