Having difficulties finding the perfect combo to outfit your new boat or to update your old gear before your next offshore trip? TackleDirect has taken all of the guess work out of matching the industry’s best reels along with the brand new series of Platinum Hook rods by TackleDirect.

The TackleDirect TDPS645080WTSIN Platinum Hook Standup Tuna Rod is high performance and the result of stringent "on the water" design and testing by some of the finest sport anglers around the world. The TDPS645080WTSIN Stand Up Tuna Rod features a durable E-glass blank with heavy duty Fuji SIN (Silicon Nitride) guides and a Winthrop roller tip, allowing for trouble free use with your choice of braid, monofilament, or braid backing with a mono topshot. This rod is ideally paired with a 50w reel for your heaviest stand up trolling and chunking applications when targeting large tunas and other hard fighting pelagics. Also doubles as a perfect blue marlin pitch rod or as a high speed wahoo trolling rod, making this one of the most versatile rods in your spread.

The PENN International VI series is designed and manufactured in the USA of domestic and imported components. Precision machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum in PENN's Philadelphia machining center. Their experienced crew has been designing and producing durable, high-quality reels in the facility since 1932.  The fully machined stainless steel gear train is the biggest in the business. The Dura-Drag system results in a smoother start up and virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings.

If your going for a combo go with an Avet 50W/2 combo
October 15, 2018
Avets are fantastic reels, and so is Shimano, but I personally own quite a few of the JX models, LX, and an EXW30/2. They all preform remarkably well, and will last you a lifetime if you put just a little love and care into them. This rod and reel combo will easily crank in a large mako, yellowfin, large groupers, and other fish with no problem, and I get that but the Avet 50W/2 hasjust a little less drag at strike and full and is much better priced. I'm not going to tell anybody on here what to get because it's their choice to buy what they want. Would i recommend this reel? Absolutely, but i would recommend others first.
