All my good reels for tuna fishing are two speeds lever drags. Think I would like a star drag for better flyline bait casting, looking for better...
Pretty tough to do better than JB. If it was my reel I would be putting I00# hollow (some say you can actually put more on because it lays flat)...
Just checked the AIS, heading past TJ short time ago.
Want to trade up to a like new 50 mak
Problems ??? Where is it ??? Got food and drink and no distractions, WHERE IS IT???
Any updates on the Indy??
I'm getting older every minute, one long one please.
No loss, looks like a wimpy spinner:-):-):supergay:
Poster seven up sounds like a great room mate. Great attitude.
A lot more to that unfortunate situation than the flu.
Very nice Jonathon, the beans are safe now that your off the beach.
I thought SDS implied that reel was a 4:1 gearing (high)
Tell her you need a 7'6" Makaira 20 sea 11
80 with the raptor
My plan also.
I would go with hollow, those who know tell me the hollow lays flat, thus you can pack more line on.
Also, with solid, and say you get in a big...
Have a blank coming soon, any one have layout specs, Thanks ( rail rod)
Whats the thought process with a oversized ring?? Seems if you have to have (key word being "if" ) a ring, a standard size ring with same rod...
Seems most people fish J-hooks for wahoo that I know.
Sportie, (how fast) ask captain, (weather) ask captain, (Ensenada) ask captain --- what do you think???

I vote for Matt on the Independence. Let's take a poll !!
What the hell do you know about lobster???
Three turn uni is your friend, just saying.
Another internet pro fisherman.
Good rod but way over rated, hx is at best a 80# rod. Makes a real nice wahoo rod.
One of the better looking rods I have seen here, not what I consider "over done" like a lot of rod seem to be,
If you could only have a few, what would you prefer for 10 days and more, Colt sniper or megabait ?? Also size and color.
Just messen with you. I have all three x,xx,xxx. I would call the xh a 80 # rod, xx 100# rod, xxxh a better 100# rod.
The 770h might be a...

What did they use for bait, thirty lb blue fish??
Have s new raptor that I will be using on a GF 770 xh or xxh.for fishing the slow pick fishing at the banks and clarion, what lb line should I be...
Very very cool.
Not sure about this, you have missed so many tuna on the drop, yet you don't notice it stopping in time, how to you know your even bit???
Just guessing, but I would think about 80% of Long Range fishing community use JB hollow and solid so I would think it is a good ??
Looks pretty killer Jim, where are you going to mount you puller for bug season??
Perfect size for rail fishing.:-):-)
Some times crew members need to be reminded what and how there job should be done. That's why he is called the Captain.
That Captain is also one...
25% of the line class (40# , 30# etc. etc.) right off the reel on a good scale will but you in the right zone. Tinker from there.
FOUR OUT OF FIVE IS GOOD
David, you sound like a whore. (rod whore) LOLLOLLOL
Don't know, but I do know who know's.
Have some Aft-cote that is years old, the resin is still clear, but the hardener has gone brown. Would I be able to use some new hardener with...
Sounds pretty cool on the tape rig, will have to try.
Just checked it on a scale, at 24#'s, it is 25% of a hundred #, 33% of 80#. Would fish it at 24# on 100#'s
Don't you think 27# at strike and 34# at full would be more than ample to fish 80 lb spectra ???
Have a Makaira 15II Sea that I would like to put on a Calstar 770 xh for that mid range size tuna. Question is, how much 80 lb JP solid will it hold ?
Looking for one in good condition thats a steal, if not a steal, then a fair price:-):-)o_O
I have what you say you are looking for, but it is like new condition. Full of JB hollow, what where you thinking you would be paying for the reel??
Whole lot easier than a butt hooked bait.
Yes it does, goodie goodie
Seems to be slower than before????
It's best when your not sure, to just let the crew pin the bait on, they know the right way.
BD did a site cleaning this morning and ever sense my connection is about 200% slower. Any one else having same experience??

Yes, for wahoo they are probable fine, but for tuna they will cut/break line on heavy drag.
