    I can pick one up for a good price(NIB) How is this reel for notheast tuna jigging? How much 65lb braid you think can fit? Or do I buy a satiga for 50 bucks more? Thanks for the reply

    With a short leader you should be able to get 350yds no problem; probably close to 400. I use a regular hx for jigging. 4yrs old and never let me down. I might be in the minority here, but I prefer lever drag reels as compared to star drag. Use a trini 20 sometimes, but am used to the avets.

    Having the low gear is a plus. I have the narrow and no problems for me. Last year we caught two 150 # YFT in Puerto Vallarta using the the HX.

    Second that with Jureal. I've got the HX-J with 350 yards of JB 60# hollow. Love the low gear.
