Default light bottom reel help

The girlfriend has been complaining that her 113hn + 5'6 standup combo is too heavy for her so I bought a Tiger Lite jigging rod but now I need a reel to go with it. It will be used for light bottom (snapper, trigs, ect)
Thinking about a Penn SQL15, Daiwa Saltist BG 30, or a Tyrnos 12. Anyone have feedback on these? They all seem decent but I've never touched one.



thanks

If it is the Tyrnos 12 II they are good for bottom fishing with the low gear you can kick it into and hammer the fish.

yeah the 2 speed might be easier for her. she struggles with the tall 113HN and wobbles it a lot.
