Re: Freespool/Overhead Reels


I believe that the Daiwa SL30SH, Penn 525, Abu 7000 are all popular surf reels. Probably best to buy one with magnet casting control to help prevent spool overrun.

I might be wrong but I believe abu has quite a few different 7000 versions.

There is also the Shimano TLD25, probably the most popular reel for targeting kingfish from the rocks. I believe it is quite unforgiving to cast.
