 I think if you are tossing poppers to large Tuna and other heavy species than this expensive reel will be a good choice. I just don't do that because we do not have "large" tuna in my hood.

Okuma has been fantastic about making changes & needed upgrades on their reels. Some took a while like with the Andros 12 being released & it being a while before we saw any new ones.

I think this reel is great for those that have the need for it. However I think the Penn torque spinners will cover all I do & more..... Jeff

The "10K" size would be decent for smaller models, but only consider the 20K for **very** heavy popping applications (like Cows).

I would be more inclined to fish a Penn Slammer III for Tuna to 150# than a Makaira. The Makaira is brutally strong for the toughest fish, but the Slammer or a Saragosa is more fun to fish on smaller models.

If you are dead set on a 20K I have one to sell you at a good price.
