I like your thinking David, especially on your choice on the smart shift 4 to 1 high. Good for night fishing jigs too. Two reasons I like my 80 and 200# is it is very efficient cranking a heavy drag. Sometimes I need to go to full and crank, mostly it is just fun to do... (50# of drag sometimes) The most efficient line retrieve is a taller spool and bigger gears. Anyway an 80 is not for everyone...As far as 200# I have witnessed a few issues using 130#. One being line breaking at the release clip, where I think a ceramic ring could help. Make sure the line in the ring is clipped the right way... Another is abraision factor on the boat hull and when there are sharks in the water.
