    I am looking to get a jigging reel that can handle large tuna (200+ pounds). Really what I am looking for here is something very compact. I know the Bakers have a more powerful drag but are they more compact. I was thinking about the size 6 as compared to the HX. I like the idea that these reels have alot of overhead room with the drags.
