    True... True and the 2speed is a plus, dropping 10 oz weight and reeling it up would help

    the only down side to the sx is how deep are you fishing - a reel that brings in more line with each turn may be helpful.

    How deep ya fishing? Should be able to get enough braid on there, and braid give ya the sensitivity. I used a 6/0 Penn, 80 lb mono, couldn't feel nothin at 450 ft. 30 lb P-line didn't feel nothin either. 2 spd easier to crank up.
