Mmmmm... Daiwa CV's Japan domestic models (these one's come with bearing supported handles) and pimped up Daiwa Zillion's (again the ones that come with or are modified for bearing supported handles) and all reels must be upgraded to Carbontex drags. Yep prefer low profile for casting and round reels for trolling.

Quantum Smoke HD, 6:6:1, 25lb drag. Was a bit dubious at first, but, silky smooth cast and drag, love it.

Nice Scotty! I've also got a Quantum Burner, n she is smooth as well. Only caught one cod on it so far, n it went well.

Ive been using a tranx 400 matched too a 7'5" zodias extra heavy for throwing big plastics at jew and barra and it is def the tool for the job. Also been running the new curado k, which is a vast improvement over the previous model ( possibly best curado ever!?)

Shimano CHRONARCH all the way!!!!!.
Japanese models 100 or 200 size with erskine carbon drag 7.0 :1
Fast enough to pull lures with the current out of feeder creeks and heaps of grunt ..... smooth as too.

These reels are p!ss easy to work on and have been thrashed for a few seasons with 0 breakdowns.

One word : SHIMANO.

I used 200 curados for years but wrecked my last one on a massive jew at maningrida and am still running this old faithful :

200B Calcutta.

The boys at fishing and outdoor upgraded the drag to a leather washer. Silky smooth, every few seasons I put new spool bearings in and it goes hard still.
