I sent my 20t to cals for the blueprinting and drags to fish 65lb spectra.. The reel has plenty of drag and enough freespool to where you can cast it a bit.. I added a reelcolors handle and its a great reel. I sometimes wish I had 2speeded it.. but its not much of an issue.. I say go for it.. others might tell you to buy another 2speed reel...
