Help me decide between Makaira 16 and the PENN16VISX
Nice fish John! I want to know more about this uc prototype rodI love what my penn reels do for me , can’t complain... I fish all the penn visxs models 12, 16, 20,30, and 50 .. They are tanks .. I also have a Mak 15t , it’s been back and forth for maintenance twice ...
last weekend I used a visx20 on 100lb on a uc 100lb prototype rod.. View attachment 1291233
Made in Taiwan, all the saved costs in labor allowed them to put all they needed into it. Imagine the makairas where made in the USA, they would probably cost a hundred more.The Mak comes with TSI lubed bearings, actually produces advertised drag ratings without fuss, comes with a 5 yr warranty, AND 5 full years of free service. Bottom line, both will perform similarly but the Mak appears to be a better value and therefore would be the smarter purchase.
