    Curious to see what you got on your fathom or torque 40nlds
    No pics but I got a dozen big tuna on that reel at Guadalupe a few years ago (100 to 140). My friend had his ass kicked on a brand new high speed reel (another brand) he purchased before the trip. He did not want to put another bait in the water after that episode but Captain Mike on the Vag conviced him to use one of the boat rigs (Fathom 40 2 speed on a Calstar rod) He hooked up immediately and winched the fish to the boat in 15 minutes. He was totally impressed and got rid of his new purchase when he hit the beach.

    Seaforth uses the 40's on their loaner gear . Lots of big bluefin caught over the years with no failures. Those reels kick ass.
