Hi Guys

I have recently got a Poseidon 5 Rod and I'd like to know what would be a good Coffee Grinder reel to use on it.

Thanks in advance. ::tight:

Howsit man, you should match the reel to the length of your rod so your setup is balanced. Longer heavier rod will require a bigger reel. ::tight:

Thanks guys for the reply, I want to catch some big fish and maybe try and land a shark if lucky. I don’t have a lot to spend.

You need to check, as I think the Poseidon 5 is a multiplier rod (short butt) and not designed for a grinder
