    Long story short, I got my hands on a 100 sized baitcaster filled it with 100 yards of 30# braid and 30 yards of 15# floro. I'm currently leaning towards using it as a light surface iron setup throwing megabaits up to 2oz and the occasional lead head. Am I crazy to think a 100 sized reel can be used for light surface irons? Any suggestions on rods to pair it up with?

    Use it for a calico reel or a bay reel

    It’s a fresh water reel... it’ll fall apart in the salt. I’ve gone through a few. They’re great from bass fishing.

    Drag power and line capacity won't cut it.
    Lastly as Ryan pointed out, it won't hold up with salt water.
    I would keep it for occasional freshwater bassin'. If not, sell it.

    What he said. Won’t last very long in the saltwater environment.
