Hey rayhunter, I wasn’t knocking your reel. Just saying that line capacity is an issue from the beach when you might need 500-800 metres just to get into the drop zone before you even get a run. Pier fishing in USA and Aussie they use 14/0 and 16/0 reels and still lose fish. I’ve had 6/0 spooled on a first run. It really doesn’t matter how expensive your reel is on a really big shark or ray. You can tighten the drag as much as you like but the fish doesn’t even slow down or act like it feels the line at all. In a boat they chase the fish but you can’t do that on land.
