Just received another prototype Mak 16 for my upcoming trip....

I spooled it up with white 100# JB solid.......it holds 500 yards with room for a 15 yard topshot of 100#/80# hollow and 25' mono or FC leader.....just a FYI...


This reel is sweet.......

I can put a little more (about 50 yards) on my 16 VSX.....but I really like the lower low gear in the Mak 16.....1:3.

the Penn is 1:7

Very close in size......

I wanna be that guy that gets "another" prototype... I realize you spend five times more days on the water, but very jealous. Can't wait until these are for sale, need these for a trip next year!!!!
