Hx is a good choice, I use the HXW for sharkin, you may need the extra line cap. if you run into a biggun it'll take line in a hurry.
I run 50lb spectra with 30lb leader ( MXL ), smaller tuna OK, but I would bump up to an Sx Raptor or the Lx series. JMO, good luck.
Holy Shite, wishin I was a fishin on that trip, outstanding:beerbang:
Razor, thanks for the heads up, just checked out his jigs, some nice stuff.

WTF, can someone explain this to me, I'm on the other coast:eek:
The reel is just over a yr. old and had it spooled at the tackle shop, will double check if line is slipping and then check bellevilles.
MXJ started to lose drag as I used it several times, max drag that I can get is
6lbs with drag knob maxed out, checked it with a scale, any ideas ?
Outstanding trip, Congrats to all :hali_olutta:
This is from Aftcos web site, another good idea is to run a nylon strip thru the guides to check for snags.
Hope this helps...
