Default Re: Buying my first "real" surf reel & rod

For me the 5000 size is too small for three reasons. Line compacity, gear durability, and line retrieve rate. If I fished down there I would not consider a reel size smaller than 6000. Or a saltist 5000, where the spool is deep enough to hold 300 yards of 65# braid.
