is the 20 little small for trolling ? I will be trolling with large diving lure creating a lot of drag and very far out in the clean water(guessing 100 yards or more)

To clarify, the 20VISX is just a narrower version of the 30VISX.
The 20 is two ounces lighter, and holds a little less line.

What kind of trolling are u talking? I no own the 30 visx but still am old school in trolling. I still drag an old 50SW everywhere just in case I pull the lottery 1 in a million.200lb Bigeye or something else. But both.reals mentioned are awesome so what's the purpose

It always depends on what fish are in your area and what the extra possibilities are. A 30 in my opinion would be the smallest I would go. Filled with hollow and a loop to loop topshot of 100 yds mono minimum. I personally prefer fishing with the newer narrow 50's. Especially for wahoo where I'm trolling a cowbell 100 yds back in the spread. The more line capacity you have on the reel, the closer you will remain at your set drag and line retrieve specs. If I know bigeye are around, I don't dare break out the 30. That's when the mak 50 and 50 visx are out.
