I'm fishing off the San Francisco Coast for Spring and Fall run Chinook, the fish can be anywhere from 8-40lb (frequently 12-25lb). We use downriggers and mooch with up to 8oz. sliding sinkers. Sometimes we troll 2-3lb cannon balls on sinker releases, but I usually use a Ugly stik tiger 7' 15-30lb Medium Light for this.
My price point is pointing me towards the Classic Glass series, but I was wondering if they have the power to turn an angry fall run 25lb king? I've seen lots of good talk about the XCF 9O3 (not made anymore?) XCC 903, XCC 934, and XCC 1064, but like I said, my budget is more Classic Glass friendly. Thanks for any help
