    Well currently my tuna jigging reel is an avet JX spooled with 65# spectra, but I am going on a 3 day trip on the viking out of montauk and we could possibly see some large bigeyes. What do you guys think is the JX up to the task or should I invest in another reel. I will be using this reel on either a GUSA Wahoo or Predator.

    What are your suggestions?

    I love the GUSA rods, Haven't used the wahoo, but the predator is a killer
