Although I haven't caught a tarpon with it (yet), I bought a Shimano Stradic 6000 spinning reel. On a medium or medium/heavy rod, it can launch any tarpon-sized lure pretty well. I've got it loaded with 50 pound (I think) PowerPro, and I use a couple feet of 80-pound flourocarbon for the leader.
I'm hoping it will get the real test shortly!
