You should catch yourself a Yeahnah with this thread.
The Daiwa SL30SH is a popular reel, it has slightly more line capacity then my Emblem Pro and is half the weight. Freespools need large line capacities because the drags are so weak it is easy for fish to take lots of line. Plus having heaps of line means there is still a bit on the reel after cutting all of the birdnest out
I should probably leave this thread now for people who know what they are talking about.
