I am having a hard time making this suggestion because of my preference towards California reel brands. Sorry familia Galvan.

Sage 6012 - It has a Jack Charleton designed drag. At one time, it was the standard for the stacked washer disk drag technology. It may only be second to the new Mako reels that have JC's latest technology. Look to spend at least $1000 for a Mako.

I have found that the Galvan saltwater reels need an extra touch of cleaning compared to other reels on the market. After each trip give it a thorough cleaning. That way it will last you a bit longer.

I highly suggest buying a spare spring clip and pawl. The pawl determines drag direction. The spring clip holds the pawl in place. In the past, a pawl broke on one of the shop demo reels that I loaned out to one of my clients.

Enjoy your reel.
