Please can someone help me, I am sure this question has been asked hundreds of times.  I have two  Assassin rods - as far as I can remember the one is a LITE - 12’9ft and the other 11'6ft. I need to buy myself a grinder for spinning, spoons, plugs etc.
The week-end I looked at Penn Sargus reels and really like them.

What would the best option be for these rods in reel size? I would hate buying two reels so I need to find one that will be able to basically handle both rods.

Do I look at the 4000, 5000 or 6000?
I am really not sure which size would balance better?

I would go for a 6000 shimano stradic maybe an 8000 which is the same reel but a different spool

I have 4000 stradic on my 9ft ugly stik and am very happy with it although some might prefer a 5000 on it

take your rod with and have a feel everyone has their own pref
