I just run sienna 2500's no need for high tech stuff for ting, if you want ruggedness then the penn slammer 260's.

Stradic Ci4. Awesome reel. Have 2500 and 4000. Upgraded drags to carbon fibre. Smooth and light. :thumbsup:

These are my favourite rods...until recently I had a Sustain 2500 on one of them and swapped it for a Nasci as I thought the Sustain was overkill. The Nasci is a surprisingly good reel for the $109 I paid for it. The other rod has a symetre 2500 which is perfect.

Shimano 2500 sienna is a great little reel, been using them for a few years now very smooth and solid and even better you can pick them up for anywhere between $50-$70

Yep I’d probably just go the sienna as well. Got a few of them and for the money a top reel :thumbsup:

The new Sedona is a lot of reel for the money as well

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I dropped into Anaconda after work and ended up grabbing a couple of Nasci's for $109ea, they seem like nice quality reels for the money and silky smooth.
