This is a very heavy duty spinning reel. It's got a ton of drag and a solid build, great for offshore fishing. Along with being heavy duty it is also heavy and big, so just be aware of that. Also, something I wish I had known is that if you don't put the spool on correctly, the screw on the top will lock into the spool and as a fish runs it will actually crank down on the drag. This happened to me last weekend tuna fishing east of Chatham, MA.
Use caution when putting the spool on...
