    Default Need a wee bit more drag ??

    This arrived with me for a client yesterday. Waiting on the blank and butt to knock up the 130 unlimited rod to match it.

    As the largest production reel in the world it`s probably a bit of an overkill for bass or mullet but these days you never know. 2,250 yds of 130lb mono and capable of drag on full spool in excess of 100lb, line really gets spooled you have over 300lb of drag, (assuming you are welded to the chair).

    That`s an Abu 7000 beside (and inside) it.

    Well you won't need to add any weight to the butt to get it to balance the rod.........

    How much does a full load of line weigh though?
