Bought this reel (took some ribbing as digital control)-specs:max drag 22# 6.2:1 gear ratio 46"-25 # 300yds paired with 13' rainshadow rod. This reel has the feel and performance of real quality(no I don't work for shimano)-pricey but definitely the answer to large reds//sharks worked it with penn525 mag & daiwaslx30 sha-

has a smooth star drag-large casting surface-can"t say I threw further than 525 or daiwa but was up there. The penn is 18oz-shimano is 22.9-much larger spool area plus alum metal. I have to say throws 12oz weights nice,especially with 13' rod.Worked thru digital settings-1/1000th of a second checks line to see if slack-engages brakes according-no blow ups very smooth -feels right on a big stick. no batteries-like a self winding watch-throwing charges it.

I plan on using this on the boat also as loaded with braid 65#=550YDS.
