Aver HX Raptor vs Pro 30

Going on a 7-day trip in late Sept, plus off shore day trips to the Gulf Stream at home. I currently have six Avet two-speeds - MX to HX - and one HX Raptor. Upgrading JX an LX to Raptors, but which would make a better 80# reel; another HX/HXL Raptor or Pro 30? Planning 100# braid with 80# top, fished on Calstar 660 or 665XH, or heavier. Thanks!

The HX Raptor as a little higher drag rating than the EX30 and the HX Raptor is much lighter in weight. The Raptor also costs a bit more. Both fish 80# comfortably. For me, it would come down to line capacity, weight, and cost.

Thanks! Weight and size are issues. And I like the additional drag strength. HX Raptor is the way I'll go.
