Good info. here. I've been using flexibility(esp. when tying knots) and differences in stretch capacity.

I just picked up 2 Santiago sa 12s and an sa 16 for $100.00 each(new) from a tackle shop going belly up. Have never owned one (am an Avet guy). but these reels at first glance look very solid although heavy. It appears they have been discontinued --cant even get them on Amazon. Can anyone give me their 2 cents on these. Will use as a trolling setup for albacore here in Washington. Thanks

I like them.  The marquesas are nice underrated reels as well.

true test is density of the material as pointed out
so cut a piece of similar length and drop in water and let go and see which drops faster?

Dunno know if you can do a little burn test and tell by the color.

30#

Iím on a 2 1/2 day next weekend and weíll spend at least the first day looking for BFT. Iím taking 20, 30, 40, 60# rigs plus a jig stick and an extra reel with 50#. My best BFT was 85# on 30#. It doesnít sound like you need the heavy artillery. The fish hitting flat falls have been 50-60#ers. Most are coming on bait with small hooks.

I'm curious about how much line you need to not get spooled when fishing 85# BFT on 30 lb line?  Mark, how much line would you guess that fish took?

Thanks, Greg

I was using an Accurate dx2-400 with 270 yds of 65# spectra and a 30# topshot.  I took a dull knife to a gunfight and won anyway! I went around the boat 7 times, 5 times under than anchor line.  The fish stayed near the surface until the very end.

On the 2 1/2 day this year I got a 30# BFT on 20# using a Fathom 12.  I got a 60# BFT on a 2 day in June on with a Colt Sniper using 50# on a Saltiga 40ld2.
