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.

I bought this reel about a year ago and slapped it on an Ugly Stik 50-130 class stand up rod. The 2 notable fish that I've caught on it were 2 Lemon Sharks, one 6'6" and one 6'. The drag stopped both of them in their tracks and only stalled twice on me. This reel is work horse, and as long as you take care of it, it won't let you down. I have mine packed with 600 yards of 100lb Power Pro and the rest is 100lb Ande Monofilament. I have no doubts in this reel for the up-coming black tip challenge at the end of January.
