Default Jigging reels

I've been wanting to get a couple of spinning reel setups for jigging and think I'm set on the Saragosa. My question is, what size would you get for the types of fishing we do in the northern gulf. Will one size cover everything from snapper/grouper, amberjack and tuna or would it be better to buy two setups?

Also have concerns about functionality and all day use. I don't want to be gassed after using a reel for an hour or so. Thoughts, experiences?

18000's. The only difference between the 14k and 18k is line capacity, so why not go with the larger? I've got a couple paired with Terez rods and they are awesome. We landed a 77 lb yellowfin Saturday with a 10" butterfly jig. There is a newer SW version out or out soon that I can't wait to see. With the newer ones coming out, you can probably get a great deal on the older model. Or you could wait and get the new one. Either way, they have the same drag as their high dollar cousins (Stella).

I am waiting for the SW. I don't think there is an 18000 in that lineup. Would you move up or down?

Amberjack and tuna will create the problems for the reel.

For jigging, I'd move up.

Why? I've caught tuna on a 1800 saragosa without any issues.

That is what I am talking about the 18000 is fine but people complain they are too heavy to jig with all day. The 8000 doesn't have the line capacity of the muster to fight big fish all the time.
