    i have a lexa 400 hd 8.1.1 gear ratio
    also a fathom 25n and 25nld2

    would any of these work? Any other suggestions ?

    also i know this a bait stick but could i get away with throwing 1 to 3 oz colt snipers / tadys

    I have a 80 Mag (similar to the mega) with a Newell G220 on it.

    Out of those listed, I would go with the Fathom 25N. Star correct?

    They all seem a bit too big for that application. A Fathom 12 or 15 star would be better suited IMO, but if that's all you got, the 25N.

    As for throwing snipers/tadys, that rod is pretty whippy so I personally wouldn't do it.

    Currently fishing a torque 25 on my 900 mega. It’s my favorite #30 bait setup

    Just got a Avet MXJ 6/4 for my 800 Mega. Was going to get a 25nld2 but for a couple bucks more I thought the Avet was a good choice.

    IMO, the 25N is too big for the Mega....I fish mine currently with a Tern 400, I had an Avet SX 2 speed on it before I got the Tern...a lot of guys fish 25 plus on the Mega, idk, for me, it feels better as a 20 lb stick...fishing UC rods is something you definitely need to get used to if you are used to fishing rods with "regular" diameters like truline, seeker, calstar, etc..lol

    the ONLY problem I have with the Tern 400 is that I can not use the clamp, it hits the gear box... as the diameter of the Mega is really small, and the guy who wrapped it put on a matching smalllll reel seat, lol...but since I fish it with 20, I really dont need a reel seat thankfully.
