What is the difference between Alijos 16ii and Makaira 20ii ?

For amberjack, wahoo, tuna (up to 100 lb), which size of Alijos you recommend?

1 Answer
So the biggest difference between the two would be the MakairaII has Tournament Drag Cams which allows for a more gradual  ramp, this comes in handy when you are Tournament fishing and using lighter lines and/or IGFA lines.

I would recommend the 16II Alijos should be a great start for handling this class of fish
