Don't have one to offer... But the reel is key in a surf set up. Sand is brutal on a drag system. Many reels will even state "not for salt.". Make sure the reel you get can withstand tremendous runs of fish as well as the grit.

I have a like new 10'6" 9wt St Croix Legand Ultra Bob Popovic model that I would be willing to part with. Its a beast and quite popular with the salt gang. Not sure if its that name or what. It will sling a line"

Dear Chef,

Following up to what David said about the reel just get a Scientific Anglers reel and be done with it. As inexpensive saltwater reels go there is nothing better, or even close.

I have a Sage 909 RPLX 3 piece and a Loomis GL3 2 piece 10 weight I'd consider parting with if you are interested. The reel for the Sage is an STH lever drag and the reel for the Loomis is a SA 9/10 with two spools and unfished lines on them, one is a floater and the other is a Tenny 350 grain sink tip.

The Sage was last used in saltwater by my brother in the LA saltmarshes for redfish. The Loomis rig has only seen duty on my lawn and one time at the Flubberdam in Sunbury on the Susquehanna.

The Sage is in it's original tube and bag and I have a reel case for the STH. The Loomis is in a DB Dunn 9' piece rod case and I have a leather case for the SA reel and the extra spool.

If you have any interest PM and we can talk, I don't really have any price in mind for either rig but I would let you cast both of them and would consider a reasonable offer.

Regards,

Tim Murphy
