Spinning reel for night shark fishing

Post by gnappi »

My son has taken to night fishing for sharks off the southeast Florida beaches with friends. He has been using my International 50 and friends have been taking the lines out (shudder) on surf boards.

He has no skill at casting conventional or baitcasting rigs so I'm thinking on getting him a beefy spinning reel / rod combo for his birthday but I need some advice on a rig. I'd like the largest heaviest capacity and prices seem to be inexpensive for better models so that's where I want to be.

Since I've had abysmal luck with Shimano "better" models lately, I've not considered them so here is the main one I'm thinking of, any help on adding to the list would be appreciated.

Penn Spinfisher V 10500 Mono 415/30 350/40 255/50 Braid 750/50 670/65 580/80
