I once managed to break a TLD25 the same way on a monster Halibut off the west coast of the Queen Charlotte islands-Shimano replaced the frame no questions asked.

I note the angler as pictured using quite a long rod to drag up those skates-a poor idea because the longer the rod the more leverage the fish has.

Hi Whalebreath   the rod is 7ft long as are all my boat rods  this one is 50LBS class  i might be wrong but no matter how long the rod is  a 50lbs class rod at 7ft long is the same as a 6ft long rod   the fish as the same pull as i do    these skate stick to the bottom of the sea bed so its set the hook and apply maximum presure and once you  get them moving then you are ok  the lads on the yak hold on for upto a hour before the skate moves off  we have had lads towed 1 1/2 miles up the loch  before thay can over power the fish    great fishing  bit like trying to pull up a 8x4ft    barn door  out of 430ft of water     tightlines Alain

Stan is the UK agent for Everol reels, he can be found at Alba Rods, contact link at bottom right of page. Give him a call and have a chat.

I've just received a VJ12 from him, absolutely awesome reel
