      Look for a Shimano Chronarch E series. They are on sale at Cabelas and are exactly what you are looking for. or a Curado I

      Plus if somthing breaks or somthing goes wrong with the reel send it to shimano and they will fix it for free they have by far the best customer service

      Go shimano check out the new curado and chronarch also u can get the shimano curado 300 e or ej or check out the shimano caenan I fish it in Salt all the time and ...more it's held up well

      Revo Inshore is the best crossover reel you can get period. Everything about it is saltwater grade. Hence "inshore" The chronarch is also a great reel. ...more But the Revo pushes 20+lb of drag.

      And pair it with an h2o xpress ethos inshore slam rod. that rod can handle anything you hook into

      shimano chronarch is the best reel to do that

      If you throw a lot of topwaters I would spend the money on a good lightweight rod. You can get a shimano citica a little cheaper then a curado or chronarch and ...more there is not a very big difference.

      I use a Calcutta 100b and love it, it's built like a tank. Handles everything from mangrove snapper to bull reds and everything in between. All around great ...more reel I also use it for bass
