You're TLD 50 will get the job done better than most spin outfits. If you're not casting there is absolutely no reason to use anything other than an overhead.

I've recently landed a couple of nice sharks (ledge based) on a Gosa 20. If you insist on trolling with spin gear the gosa 25 will probably get the job done just as well as something 4 times the price.

If you want to be casting and money is no issue, either a stella 20 or a Saltiga 8000 for a reel, and i'd look at something like a temple reef, maven, or zenaq for the rod. That outfit is going to set you back a couple of grand thought.

Coming from the bloke who trolled for tuna using a Daiwa BG


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.


Was thinking of getting 2 game spin outfits for you or other mates to use if we go game fishing

i have my own mate, thats what i take with me when im going offshore, as 4 lites already mentioned, i troll for tuna with my spin gear, and yesterday we had 3 spin outfits trolling (one monstrositity of a penn, one 6500BG and one 20k gossa) and 2 overheads . plus another 2 spins for casting stickbaits.

if your just getting an outfit for others and dont want to break the bank
i suggest a BG8000 or a saragossa equivalent or even a penn and a saltist bluewater 60S/monster mesh 531 or something similar in size which will land a barrel if you get enough line on the reel.
this combo wont break the bank like the other suggested combos, but the expensive ones are certainly nicer to use.

ive compared the gossa and BG side by side, gossa certainly has a nicer sounding drag, BG is defenitely smoother to wind and both have nice smooth drag. gossa holds more line and has higher drag capacity. but thats a bit hard to compare because theres no two that are exact same size between the brands.

if your mates can use the overheads then thats easily sorted, i cant and i dont expect guys that im going out with to have offshore spin gear, so i bought my own even though i know very well it will only get used sparingly
