big spinning reel

  1. My wife is getting back into bass fishing. I fish pads and sloop alot. I use all bait caster with heavy line and rods. I don't think that I can teach her to throw a bait caster. Is there a spinning reel outfit that would handle up to 20lb fireline for the pads? If so what would it be and what rod should I use? She was throwing a shamano spirix with 10lb fireline but the rod was too limp. Any ideas?
  2. any Shimano 2500 series will do it .I have a Symetre with it on ,,as for the rod depends how much you want to spend
