    I am about to go on my first big tuna popping/jigging trip. I have a Cabo 80 spooled with 65# Spectra on a OTI 50# Popping rod. I wanted to see if there is anything I should be doing to the drag or bearings etc... before I go. I have only caught a few kingfish so the reel has never been truly tested like it is going to be.

    I have Cal's Grease from past carbontex drag upgrades if that would help the stock washers.

    you should be fine. just make sure the drag washers arent dry. i would give them a bit of cals just in case. good luck and have fun!
