I have heard they can grow up to 200lb, but i’m not totally sure. Here is a picture of a 40kg one.
This enormous skate was caught by Liz Melrose while surfcasting at Coopers Lagoon near the Rakaia River mouth. It weighed a hefty 40kg and measured seven feet in length.28/08/2007 at 10:31 am #8503

You can get a ABU Ambassadeur 7000 off trademe for $150 + shipping http://www.trademe.co.nz/Sports/Fishing/Salt-water/Reels/auction-115381154.htm01/09/2007 at 9:37 pm #8591
It seems most english people prefer to use free spool reels such as the abu 7000. Is that because they are the main sort used in england?
