Quote from: marc77 on March 15, 2015, 11:53:42 PMYes, I very much enjoy using the Senator 114 reels for offshore fishing. I wanted to use the 114HLW and 115 reels to get more line capacity without using braid backing.I have many lever drag two speed reels. They are great for trolling. But I like using star drag reels for bait fishing.I installed longer handles on my offshore star drag reels. They certainly add more cranking power, but one can increase the handle length only so much before it becomes uncomfortable and awkward.In response to Sal's remark regarding sportmanship, the ultimate is catching a 300 lbs swordfish on a hand line (yoyo). Mano a mano, no rod, no reel. There are many places in this world where that is done on a daily basis. It works just fine. They do it in Florida and it is lots of fun.
