I've been using a 40# topshot on top of 65# spectra with good success. If the 80+ pound bf are around, what do you guys think about using a 50# topshot on this reel? Would I be "pushing" it a bit? Thanks for any advice.

Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
It's not whether you use 40# or 50#; it's how much drag you use. IMHO, the JX is best with 15# of drag or less.

Anytime I fish 50 or 60lb top shots I use my hx reels.. JX dose not put out enough drag for 50 lb. I'm not saying it can't be done just would not advise it.
