I am looking into adding a 2 speed 30# reel to my arsenal. The primary use would be jigging for smaller Tuna in the Gulf of Mexico. Mostly Blackfin to 25# and smaller yellowfin to 50#. The 3 reels I have initially considered are the Okuma Andros 5NII, Accurate Fury FX-2 400, and Avet Raptor MXJ. What do you all think? Any other reels I should consider?

I might consider the Penn Torque 25n. A little big, but bulletproof.....

Sounds like the primary focus is on 2-speed lever drags.
As mentioned the Penn TRQ25NLD2 is a very good choice, but may be larger than needed for this application.
Its smaller brother, the TRQ15LD2 holds over 400 yards of 30-pound braid, is only 16 ounces, 20 pounds max drag, phenomenal freespool and castability, Made in USA.
