Okay I know this going to turn into a big controversy, but.... I got back from my first tuna trip, using my Hopper 600 with a Diawa Saltist 50 (4.9:1 version) , and I have a few things I want advice on. My concerns were; 1-- I noticed it was pretty difficult to handle larger fish.... maybe my puny arms .. I don't know. 2-- I noticed that I need something to pop with if I hope to tie into a good YFT 3-- I noiced that even when I setup the Diawa for heavier fish, that it was a bit tough to reel them in (maybe again my puny arms) I want something I can pop with something that will land a GOOD sized tuna, it doesn't have to be a tank, but something that will handle the fight, without beating me up in to process, I feel my above setup beat me up a bit, it landed fish well, but I want something a little heavier with more versatility, starting with the reel what would solve or remedy most of my concerns?
