Reel for beach fishing

hey guys, I’m having a custom rod built for fishing the beaches for snook and tarponand whatever else I may come across 9’ custom 15-25lb class rod able to handle 3/4oz to 4 oz bait. I’ll mainly be tossing flair hawks crystal minnows and spooltecs. Look for a rod 25-30 lb braid. Looking for a reel sealed preferred with ability to hold at least 250 yards of 25-30 lbs looking at Daiwa BG 4500 penn slammer III or Saltist. Any others you would recommend other than a Van Staal on Stella not dropping that kind of coin yet 
time enjoyed wasted is not wasted time
