    Loose screw on the dog cover plate caused the plate to break when I was winding down on the fish and it decided it wanted to run again. Turned out it was user error on my friend when he limp wristed screwing everything back together. I decided that it wasn't worth any more future problems that he might have caused and basically gave it away to another friend that loves his MX reels with the knowledge that he would have to go through it all before using

    90# Bluefin on Mx, 45 minutes. After that I can't imagine what a 200# tuna would be like!

    Here we go. This was my first trip out with my mxl. Had the drag buttoned down about as far as I could within factory specs. Caught atleast 20 AJ's this size, one false albacore and had a big wahoo take about 200 yards out within a minute or less before he broke me off of the wreck. Sure was a heck of a day. Needless to say I have had 5 avet reels and am planning to get a good many more. Heck of a piece of art and very easy to disassemble/ maintain.

    Reel is still works great, clicker is going out, and the AJ managed get the frame screws to back out, but I still bring it every trip and tear it up with it.

    It's funny how I started this thread to show a buddy of mine that you don't need an insanely powered reel to catch big fish even if it's deep sea fishing but some of these are just eye popping

    Wow, some awesome catches here everyone.

    SX 5.3 MC, 35lb Bluefin with 50# braid and 40lb flouro leader for me using a cal star 800L deck hand rod. Wasn't even close to limiting this little reel.
