I have a new rod, a 10 1/2' G. Loomis Med/Hev. mod. action. I bought a Quantum Boca 80 for it but it is so big it won't even go on the rod. If it did I think I have an over kill the reel weighs a ton. It looks like a deep sea rig for sail fish. I have know idea what I'm doing being new at this so before I try again with a catalog in the dark I am asking for suggestions to match a reel to this rod. I want to put 20lb test on it for big salmon and steelhead. I know, I know you all use 2lb line for all of that but I am just starting and want 20lb on mine. A top quality spinning reel for this would be what???????????
