Good little reelThis is very good general purpose reel for when you want a star drag. I like it mostly bottom fishing and casting. The ONLY reason I dinged it to a 4 star is the lugs for the real seat clamp. They are of good design but material that just isn't up to the quality of the rest of the reel. The flanges that hold them to the foot of the reel will break under strain if you don't snap them off installing them. I found a few solutions like the cork puppy, the trinadad A clamp and the Tiburon TCU-L. I choose the Tiburon clamp. Runs about $40 and was about half of the most expensive solution. Other than that it fishes with the power and reliability of the older Penn 4/0s with out the weight, balance and slack in the anti reverse. Far more castable too. The gear ratio is nice and high so you can make a jig really move when you want too. They have a permanent place on the boat with out worry of early replacement. I'd buy them again and recommend them to anyone. Figure out the right reel seat clamp issue fix for your application right out of box though. Don't wish you did when your out on the water.

Torium 16hgaI have the 16 and loaded with 500 yards of 50 Berkley Professional Braid. The reel is smooth, very powerful, free spool is awesome and casting is awesome and the drag is nice and smooth with carbon fiber washers. It is really compact...almost the size of the Torium 14. The 16hga is slightly slimmer and slightly taller. For jigging, casting and retrieving it is great with the narrow spool. Most people would probably not need more than the 330 of 65lb braid it holds though.its also a one piece cast frame now, no graphite! A nice budget Trinidad if you do not need to spend the 450. If your concerned about casting distance, just upgrade the spool bearings to bocas.
Only downside is the frame on bottom is not bowed so if you decide to load up 535 of 50 or 330 of 65lb braid, be careful leveling line back on. I just didn't load all of the capacity to leave a little room. Problem easily solved
