give charkbait a call, and they can reccommend the best pound test spectra for the reel if you buy it from them, probably go with a hollow core because you will be able to do a loop to loop with a wind on leader or splice on a topshot
holds 460yds of 40lb mono, pulls 35lbs of drag on strike, 49oz
it's a dual drag reel, maybe a bit better suited to dropping deep, and heavier tuna chunking. I'm guessing you're using the reel on a charter boat rather than a private?
would you mind posting a bit more info
size of tuna
depth of deep drop?
The Tiagra 16 is a great reel. You must be a bottom feeder. That's a good price. I've been bottom feeding for a Twinspin 20 for over 3 months with no success.
I went to the final four game last night, and when I got home I was shock to find out I had won another Stella 20K for 518.00. The third highest bid was 425.00. If the second highest bidder wouldn't have showed up, it would have been mine for 430.00.
Monday night is always a good night for bottom feeders on ebay. If you want to sell anything on ebay, always end it on Sunday night. That's the heaviest traffic night on ebay. Monday is the slowest.
