Just to toot my own horn: I caught a cow on my HXW a couple years ago. The fight took over and hour, and the whole time I was wishing I was fishing my 50T. But fish in the 100# range: The HXW Raptor on a UC Centaur is a great set up. Great.

The Centaur loads up so well and has so much lift it is almost unfair to use it on fish under 100 lbs. Just put it on the rail and crank when you can.
