    Not sure if this is a stupid question or if this question has been asked a million times but here goes.

    So the general rule of thumb is that SX is for fishing 20lb and the MX is for 30lb, but why is this since they both share the same drag?

    Just due to capacity. I use the MXJ for 25#. I don't go to 30# on the SX/MX lines.

    Yea, it's mostly just line capacity. But if you are debating which one to buy, look at two additional things: 1. Which one will balance best on the rod, and 2. The MX has a faster retrieve -- 5:8:1 versus 5.3:1-- and a larger spool diameter. The numbers for the two speeds are similar.

    Also if you do get 2 speeds I fish the G2 at 30 because when fishing 30 your not going to put more then 10# of drag on it and mine fishes 10# no problem. And if I do need to winch in a fish like a bsb you will love that second gear
