I fish in the surf a lot and I use a 13 tricast and the reel I use is a Revo Toro NaCl 60 spooled with 65 pound braid. I use 2-3 feet of 30 pound flurocarbon off the end. Ever since I started using braid I have been catching more fish and I love the fights as you can feel everything. Some people don’t like braid and all I say is have you used it and the answer is usually no. Get out there and try braid dont use the cheap crap you get off trademe go into a tackle store and get some good stuff like fireline.
