finally got around to getting a stick for my 10k and got it spooled for this season. Ended up putting it on a jigging rod. Centaur constellation 51S the yellow one. Felt great and really couldn't pass it up at the price point. Bought it locally at the Real Seat in brielle. they mentioned the shorter length should offset that little bit of extra weight. Got 450yrds I believe of 65lb Maxcuatro

On 20k landed few bft 150-250 a lot black tip on 30 k quiet few tarpons countless sharks 100-500 rang I have reels way below 20 and 30 serial so very first 30k went bad after second 200ish fish but okuma fixed and upgraded bail since than no problem at all I used Stella's before for years but I switched to mk and never looked back build like tank waterproof not afraid of sand on beach if okuma introduce 5-6k size I would buy it instantly. Reel is like vs and stella mix,not smooth as shimano or daiwa but I loved conventional like drag settings one click and you can go from 0 to 20-30 and up drag great reels period

What target fish for?.For popping I would only use the Makaira 30k for huge XXL TUNA, but 39oz!!.
The 20k size has more competitors: a less free spinning (oil seals) and 34.4oz!(or 35??). The torque or expedition 8000 30,8 and with more braid capacity. Here you have other options like certate, slammer hs or saragosa 25k (same oz, but +yds).

* Peculiar drag system.

Targeting mostly Big GT and Tunas. 20K is good for popping?
