I got a couple of issues
1) The reel may be kinda heavy, I usually fish with 18 pounds line that's like a .30 mm mono... and the RCN60 has 145 yds of 14 pounds line capacity..
I have 3 options here,
option 1) go with the RCN61 and switch to braided line ( wich I don't like for surf casting, because it looses visibility with time, and Hi-vis line is of great help for me ).
option 2) go with the RCN61 high capacity that has 245 yds of 14 pound , and fill it with the 18 pounds... to get like 200 meters of line, or something like that... ( but the reel is heavier )
option 3) , Go with another reel ( I need left handeds only )
Well thanks guys , I hope you can help me

After reading a bit, a more expensive reel that could work could be the Daiwa Luna 253L or the 300L ( is that one too big?? ) , what do you think about that?
PS: I am still looking for opinnion about the HCN61

Think about it, a typtical cast you make of 150 yards, that will only leave you with 50 yards left to fight and that might not be enough. Trust me 14# is more than enough to catch most fishes in the sea.
But what reel are you taking ? The High Capacity Record ???
I was making some "Reel Research" and the Luna 253L looks pretty promising, this are the specs:
Bearings: 5 Super Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings + 1 RB
Gear Ratio: 5.1:1
Line Per Handle Turn:23.6"
Line Capacity(Lb. Test/Yards): 12/235, 14/195, 17/150
I think this one is more expensive, but it could be a GREAT option for me, its lighter, can carry more line without having to go for the Luna 300L ( wich is actually a lot heavier ). I throw like 2.8 oz
What do you think ??
PS: What quality mono lines do you actually recommend me ? ( not braided please! )
It will arrive in a couple of days
