Hello From the Northwest Coast of America. I have a Finn-Nor Model 6500 that I use specifically for that purpose. Off-shore fishing here includes dropping line over 100 fathoms with weights near 16 ounces. This is usually due to wind and drift. Jigging is the only viable method to fish at these depths. I use hand tied streamer fly patterns as droppers off the main line. We locate them approx 1 foot up from the weight, and spaced 16 to 24 inches apart. This works well for Halibut and Ling Cod.
The Finn-Nor reel is a five stat performer in this environment by the way. Mine is matched to an Ande 20-50 lb spinning rod. What a combo.The rod matches the reel Purrrfectly....
You will be better off. I had that exact reel.
After 2 trip it fall apart had to jbwell the bail screw. Don't get me wrong it still catch fish.
Life to short ...no head ache with shimano reel or penn reel.
