Thinking about it, I would be interested to know your thoughts on which reels are best for fishing the surf for salmon? Long distance casting is the name of the game. Is braid a good option for distance casting. I know some anglers are using braid on their Abu Ambasadeur 7000s. I guess two reels that would be near the top of the list would be the Abu 7000 and 7500, but which others would you recommend?
