There's a new 50 that just hit the shelves. Penn has finally come out with the 50VSW. It's topless and narrow for you guys that can't handle the wobble of a wide model. The drag curve on this reel is fairly consistent in drag pressure all along its lever's arc. If your a Penn lover, this is your tuna reel. The first thing I would do is to replace the handle or at least that uncomfortable looking knob on the handle.
Here's some specs.
45#'s of drag at strike
650 yds of 200# Spectra with 50 yds 130# topshot
500 yds 130# Spectra with 100 yds 80-100# topper
3.1:1 high and 1/3:1 low gear ratio
line retrieve per crank in low gear 14 inches
line retrieve per crank in high gear 34 inches
Four bearings, Penn's Quick Shift mechanism...
