    Wandering what the drag is like and if it realy is capable of 33# like shimano says. Will it hold up on long runs of 50-100lb yft's. Thinking about spooling with 65 or 80# braid for jigging or livebaiting. Any recomendations?
    Thanks

    Try it with 80 and write a report.

    I was thinking about either the 12 or the 16 but felt they were too heavy for jigging.

    JMO :rolleyes:
