I got to go huk some lead with my new setup today. Throwing a 6oz egg sinker felt great, best distance I have ever got with that much weight. Caught one 8"ish white grunt on it, didnt even notice it was on there until I got it to the surface. So far the gear feels strong but again I barely gave it a test. I got a 50/50 combo on good cast and elaborate bird nest, less and less the more I cast. So far this combo is shaping up to be my favorite, light, strong, and fits my hands so well.

 Grin   Believe you to be far from being a dummy. I know it has to be confusing for some with the 4.8:1 set not being listed on any Torques except the 40 on Mystics website

Chris, I'm glad this reel is working well for you. If this does turn out to be your Fav. you should look at the 12 & 15 star drags. While these work well in the salt they will work great in frsh water landing or bringing to boat any fresh water fish that swims in North America. Unless the depth is great... Jeff

We just signed paperwork to build a house in Apollo Beach, 10 minutes from the bay. Hooefully the only fresh water fishing for me will be the catch and release ponds in the community with my daughter. Then just cobia and reds running through the warm power plant discharge. Fingers crossed of course  Grin

Wow Chris, You lucky dog. Living there one of those two reels would still be a consideration for me.  They cast lite stuff like a spinner... Jeff

I had to sell my squall 15 to help pay for the torque. I really liked that reel for 2oz wieghts. That cast like a dream, the clicker was super stiff and you could feel it was close to its limit on a few of the under 10lb jacks. I think i will be looking more at either finishing my Jigmaster into a long range bomber or look at the Fathom series when the time comes. Not sure a new $600 reel is in the cards anytime soon. Unless of course another deal like this last one comes up, might have to go do a side job to get one or two.

There are deals on these reels often enough. No problems tossing 1/4 - 1/2 oz on my Torque 12's.
 
This 25 does OK with 1 oz.  but starts singing with 2 oz.   weights & up with my 8' Tilefish.

This combo will be used for drifting & casting bait  for distance. Until I find an appropriate 9' - 10'  two pc. rod & afford to purchase it... Jeff

I think its sad in a way. Ive noticed tackle shops dropping star drag reels.

I really do like the few 2 speed lever drags I own. While Ive gone back & forth deciding whether  I reeally need them.

I find myself headed out with them every week.

However my heart will always be with the simple & lowly star drag... Jeff
