I got invited to go fishing in south Louisiana with some guys and need another rod. I come down to Pensacola and fish every year and have some good salt water stuff, but the style they do requires more equipment than I've got. I have a Penn Fierce 3000 on a 7' M action rod, a Salt Striker 4000 on an 8' MH rod and then some bigger poles that I use for bait fishing, bottom fishing and shark fishing that won't be very useful on this trip. Anyhow, I don't want to spend much money. I'd like to stay under $40 if I can, but don't want to buy crap that's going to freeze up after 2 days. I'll likely put it on another 7' M action rod. I don't do bait casters, just spinning reels. I've looked a little at the Okuma Avenger and it seems to get good reviews, but you never know if those people actually know what they are talking about. I wouldn't rule out used, but you don't see a lot of used reels that would stand up to salt water in Arkansas where I live.
