I'm looking around for a rod to match up with my Stella 20K and came across this photo from a rod manufacturers web site. It looks like the fish (tuna?) is on the run. My question is: what's the benefit to leaning back like this? I know it puts a strain on the fisherman, and the rod and the guides but how much does it really help in slowing down the fish? From my experience the answer is not much at all, all most all the work is done by the drag during this phase.
