I am looking to use this reel for pike fishing, and I want to throw 1½ Lures like swimbaits and x raps. I would be using 50lb. Sufix. Your input is greatly appreciated.

This reel would be a good fit for your application, but using a 50 lb braid will limit your line capacity. I would ESTIMATE that the reel will hold just under 200 yards of 50lb braid, which you could most likely get away with. As of right now this particular model is not available from our suppliers, but the other models of the Ambassadeur in the 6500 will suit your application.

It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
