    Reel for throwing iron???

    I understand for throwing irons 40#-50# line is best. What reel do you all think is the best? Star drag? 2spd? Lever drag? Smaller reel like newell 229, saltiest BG30 or newell 338, saltiest BG40? Note: for some reason the "search" button would not work and yes I did go back a few pages to look.

    2 speed reels why for lite line?

    I'm looking at all the smaller 2 speed reels and wonder why would you need 2 speed for 20#- 30# line? I could understand if the high speed was hyper speed and the low was normal (6.3-1)

    Bloody deck.

    Went out on the Freedom Friday night and we killed it. Over 200 fish were caught. The fish were biting on 80# mono. Just about everything you threw out the would hit it. The deck hands cleaned fish for 7 hours straight. My take of the trip.
