I have a 12' ugly stik. I am up in the air for surf fishing between the shimano baitrunner 8000 or 12000. Any input would be great?

For surf I'd go with the 12000. You have slightly quicker line retrieve, a stronger drag, and more line capacity. On average its only $10 more than the 8000.

Larger spool there should be less drag on the line leaving the reel hence farther cast For the surf I'd always go larger.

The 12000 isn't as big as you'd expect. Go with it. On a 12', it should be perfect.
