I purchased this reel after reading many reviews and posts from Kilsong. His confidence in this reel for tuna under 150lb is what caught me. I've outfitted my saltiga with carbontex drags and jigging master handle. The handle is much more comfortable than factory. I've topped this reel out at 25lb of drag. No tests on the drag system yet but hopefully soon. As in my other post, the reel is paired with a custom OTI 80lb blank spiral wrapped by JPR. Enjoy the pictures.
