The ATD-6 is a heavier reel designed differently than the other reels you describe. For 150# tuna your BV2-800 or your BX-30 will get the job done.But torque on atd6 is 47 on BV2 800 is 36 pound
Also 500 yard is good enough for me
Which can handle better on larger fish ,I have bv2 800 and B30
Already ,i like smaller reels
Any other input,thx
That’s what I’m worried. I want to spool 80lb HC, and use it for chunking. Let the line out about 200-300ft. Wondering if still have some line in the reel to stop the tuna.The problem with using the ATD6 for big fish is its line capacity: It's listed as holding 450 yards of 50#. IMHO, that's not enough for a 150# tuna, at least not in an anchored boat. The ATD12 is a great "finesse" cow reel; the ATD6 is just too small.
