    Marquesa looks like it would suit.

    Moejoes, picked up the skull drag this morning, left the Bunker Syndrome to get a shorter butt, i reckon with reels Crunchy, a Torsa 20, tried a few other reels like a talica 16 but Torsa 20 seems a natural fit,, just my opinion

    No worries crunchy! Lol there's a story behind that! Isn't there Moejoes! There are no more Shimano torsa's in captivity and they do not make them anymore! I fished with a fella a couple of weeks ago on giddyup( or should I say watched some whales with a bloke!) and he had a finnor marquesa and it seemed ok, he fishes a lot off Fraser with it, and was happy with it!

    Cheers whallup

    Mate, do you really think it will be worth the grief upsetting Juna??

    If so, you are a braver man than me

    I've got a Marquesa 20T single speed that I've had for a few years now. I'm very happy with it. Smooth drag, pulls up to 17 kg maxed out. I'd happily get another. Given the amount of braid I can fit on it and the relatively shallow depths up here, I'd even consider a 16 if it could pull similar drag levels.

    Cheers

    Blooded the new rod yesterday with a decent spangly & couple of snaps, the T30 was a bit bulky and a narrower more compact reel would be the go. Nice rod though, very very sensitive even with mono.

    Mmmmm I can see a torsa 20 in there and it is missing the handle!������

    Re: What reel for my new "Bring it on"

    Right and wrong there buddy, yep its a Torsa 20 but no, it does indeed have a handle!

    Many thanks to all who gave advice on what to get, very useful input and much appreciated. From the responses above I did a bit more research and decided on the Torsa 20. No doubt the Talica is a very good reel but the Torsa is a better built reel from what I could learn, plus I think whenever Shimano bring out a new model they are a downgrade from the model they replace, yes more features and hype but actual build quality , (See AH's review of the new Stella last year - very sad, Baitrunner downgrade, Ian miller T-Curves to the Revolution...maybe more?).

    Finding a Torsa 20 was not easy, after a few false starts with webshops showing in stock only to ring and find they weren't taught me a valuable lesson - ring before ordering! One shop rang Shimano for me but nada in stock - its all over for the Torsa. Anyhooo tracked one down in WA (Ray & Annes - very good service) and ordered over the phone on Thursday and arrived today .

    Thinking PowerPro 50Lb, Im usually a Fin's man but keen to try something else - thoughts?

    Cheers
    Crunchy
