Great great great reel
I purchased a 9/0 over this past winter and wasn't dilatory in using it. I hooked up to a wahoo off the coast and the reel handled flawlessly. Since I have used this reel on a trophy class trolling rod numerous times. I have had kingfish rip line off of it and the drag holds tight still. This is a quality built American made product. I wouldn't recommend anything smaller in the senator class. This will give you a good variety of what you can do with it. I.e. Shark fish, king, tuna, wahoo, sail, etc and not have worries of not enough line. I am also considering another on a stand up rod for another bait out trolling.
