Honestly, I would avoid spinning gear. The regulars and experienced guys always think "oh no" whenever they see someone with a spinning reel on a cattle boat. I'd say learn to cast with and get real familiar with conventional gear - it's unavoidable and really the better choice when fishing big fish with lots of people. The main issue with spinning gear is the issue of line twist based on the physics of how spinning reels work. Your line will get twisted and even more so during/after you fight a big fish - I've seen too many break-offs with larger fish on spinning gear and likely due to this reason. If your gear is in tip-top shape it's probably OK but you generally have less control and feel of the bait with spinning reels vs conventional especially when fishing live bait. Not to mention line capacity to weight of the reel - you generally need a pretty large spinning reel to get the same line capacity that you could get on a conventional which will typically be smaller form factor and usually weighs less. Drag can also be a factor - spinning reels tend to have a weaker drag system compared to conventional reels. You have to get a really *nice* spinning reel if you want something with decent drag and torque as well (like a Shimano Stella, Daiwa Dogfight, Accurate Twinspeed, Penn Torque II, etc). Also, conventional reels you want to feather the bait and feel it swimming. Definitely harder to do this with a spinning reel. If you're casting poppers then a spinning setup is fine. If you absolutely have to go spinning, I would say an 8000 sized reel *minimum* with a 20-50 or larger rod. You could go smaller but I would only do that if I were on a private boat. For that matter, the only time I'd consider using any spinning gear for tuna/yt is on a private boat though. Either way, I'd recommend loading the spinner up with as much braid as you can and probably 65-80lb no less - short top shot of fluoro or mono too. Line twist is *bad* when it gets on the fluoro and mono.

Saw that and temped. But they are making room for the new 2019 model, which they claim to have made lots of improvements.

Link seems to just redirect to the main product page now, and not a specific listing. Did they remove the 2018 models already, or am I just blind?

EDIT: Nevermind, I just had to check the "30-40%" off toggle on the left-hand side of the product page to surface the discounted 2018 models.

The original Terez models from 2012(?) were my favorite.. cork handles, greater selection of lighter/inshore friendly action.
Nothing wrong w these clearance models— a good deal, just too heavy for me. Hopefully the "improvements" will be a step towards the originals, haha.

I guess it's a good thing I never catch anything, let alone something that requires more than an ugly stik can handle.

Can anyone tell me which model spinning rod would be best for a long distance offshore trip targeting Tuna and Yellowfish? I know conventional rods and reels are more appropriate but I want to take a spinning rig along this year.

Do you mean Yellowtail? I'm assuming you're in Southern California? Popping has become more popular for throwing into tuna boilers, in which case spinning rods would be the right application, however you want closer to 8' - it doesn't look like the Terez rods that are on sale are meant for this style of fishing though it doesn't mean you can't try. Only thing is that the max length spinning rods I see are 7'2 which seem a tad short.

Yea these are *heavy* rods - the kind I'd get for sub-100# tuna and big yellowtail fishing. It's too bad I already have some rods lined up for that. Getting any of these would be total overlap. I need some rods in the sub 40 and sub 50 range. Like 15-40 or 20-50 in conventional.

Yes Yellowtail, sorry! laugh out loud I'm not from Southern California, but the Tuna trip will leave from there. Thanks for the information. Not to get too far off topic, but have you fished for larger tuna with spinning gear? What rod and reel would you recommend? It will be on a bigger offshore boat with 30+ people, more specifically the Royal Polaris leaving out of San Diego. I did this trip 2 years back and while most on the boat used conventional rods / reels, I did see some bring in some big fish on spinning gear and since I'm more comfortable with spinning gear I'm looking to bring a spinning rig for this trip. Appreciate any advice you can give!

You can always go straight braid and just put on a flouro leader. I have a saragosa 6k with 65# maxcuratro with a 7'6h terez and with all the yellowfin tuna boiling right now no problem. Caught man 40lb yellowtail at the islands, but if there's a cow tuna in the mix good luck 😅
