 Welcome to the Ohana

 Your US113 is a great reel until you hook into that "fish of a lifetime" and the dogs fail. Easy way to prevent that failure is to get yourself a Cortez conversions bridge/sleeve upgrade. It's a no brainer and worth every penny.

For one thing the VIS has a top crossbar & the VISX is topless. VIS sizes are 16 to 130. VISX sizes are 12 to 50. Ratios are different between them.       Rudy

Trevor, the VISX series has advanced drag curves designed to fish up line classes using braid- like 80 lb braid on a 16 reel. The VIS have more traditional drag numbers more reflective of line-class fishing- mainly trolling with mono. Even the VIS drag numbers are higher than the earlier gen Internationals, tho. For instance, Gen 1 and II 80's were rated at 37 lbs; a new 50VISW is rated at 45lbs, whereas the 50VISX is close to 60 I think.
