    Good Evening Everyone!

    Got a few questions about the Dauntless.

    Are they being phased out?

    I have a 600, Was thinking about spooling it up with 100lbs Maxcuatro and using it for a 60-80lb rig.

    How do you guys have your dauntless set up?

    I have 550 yards of 80lb hollow and a loop for wind ons. Paired with a 8' UC predator. Your going to enjoy that reel.

    “Are they being phased out?”

    Curious about this question as well.

    I have 2 of them. I keep one filled with 80lb Jerry Brown solid and one filled with 65lb Jerry Brown solid. They are my favorite reels for Guadalupe. I also have a 600N that is filled with 65lb JB spectra. I use the 600's for 60 and 80 lb bait outfits and the 600N for 50lb. I can't imagine that they would be phased out but maybe there is just not enough demand. I got mine on sale at Turners and the reason that they were on sale was supposed to be because they were not selling very many of them and they wanted to make room for faster selling reels.

    Dont quote me on this but i believe the Valiant 2-speeds are pushing the Dauntless out-the-door. Dauntless is built stronger though, thats for sure.

    The Dauntless is not being phased out. The line set up you suggested and some of the other choices listed below are appropriate for your Dauntless 600 sized reel. My reel has 80# Izorline spectra and 60# Izorline triple X Mono top shot.
