Great reel , you can use it for yo-yo or surface iron , dropper loop even flylining live bait 50 or 60 pound top shot. I like the 7400h calstar for 50-60 yo-yo and dropper loop or the 800xh for surface iron or flylining.
At the Lupe this year that has been the go-to reel to 60 pound flyline for...
I have run 3 rice bowl charters too the Lupe on the Shogun this year . 60 pound top shot and 80 braid is the hot set up as far as rod and reel the Fathom 40 and a calstar either a 700xh or a 7400 is a great 60 pound set-up for your son.
Good luck and tight lines too you !
Al Myers charter...
Just came back from a Rice Bowl Charter 8 day at the Lupe.
The boat rod and reel on the Shogun was a Calstar 7400 and the Penn 40 fathom loaded with 80 pound izor braid and 60 top shot , pulling on 60 to 100 plus pound yellowfin , the real had no trouble.

First off , their are still some closure at the Lupe that you can not stop or drop a line in , second you can fish the Lupe but it depends on how many day trip you are on ,my last trip was a 8 day,
my next Rice Bowl Charter is in Nov. a 6 day so you have 4 days too fish. Yellowtail day time...
Just got back from a rice bowl 8 day at the Lupe.
Fished the Lupe 6 days and wow !
Flylined 60 the hole trip and on the dropper nothing less than #100, yo-yo 60 and hold on !
Except too pay the taxman but we have all we wanted .
Just make sure you have a 80 and 100 pound set up ready
The boat has troll gear or you can bring your own. The halco was the hot ticket last season but don't forget the old cedar plug.Make sure your trolling gear is at least 60 pounds. There is still a lot of red crab in the water so if you have anything Red bring it . Our 3 (Rice Bowl Charter) day...

Hi , I use Ziploc bags and I label the outside of them, 80 -100-120-130-200 and so , this way you can see what pound test without opening and digging thru them . Also the bags lay flat or stack flat and take a lot less room then spools.
Cal builds a supper 12,that you can fish 60 to 100 . I was on a Bob Sands charter a couple of years ago with Cal and his super 12 , saw Cal pull in a 170+ yft on that reel . Had to have one , so I fish 60-80 on mine.
I was on the Calstar trip , the third day out we lost a gearbox and had too return to San Diego for safety of the passengers and crew. I want to thank the crew Brad, Andy, Justin and David and Captain Ray.Don't let me forget Mark and Doc in the galley , they kept us fed and happy on the slow...
