what are you planning on fishing for and where?
That would tell us the likelihood of you getting a nasty surprise with such a set up.

Rockfish and some yellow tails. Any good pointers on fishing for yellow tail? I have a Shimano Torium as well.

They are not the same thing that you fish for up here. All of the tropical species pull uber hard, like 4 times as hard pound for pound. Rockfish here or calicos are like wet socks versus mack trucks down there. I promise the first fish you land you will be amazed at how small it is for how hard it pulled.
Your torium is more useful and can handle most things you'll get into. What size is it?
