your basic 4/0 penn 113h senator.  for what it is and for what it does, i think it is still the best value in the world.  it has an acceptable power to weigh ratio, parts will be available forever, plenty of mods.  truly the ar-15 of the fishing reel world.  it would not surprise me at all if someone told me that this reel had taken more fish than the next 10 reels combined.

As much as I love the workhorse 113H, in my opinion (guess???)a Zebco 202 has probably caught more fish than any other reel. Unless you are referring only to saltwater, then I would agree.

Love usin a lever drag(TLD 20) but a metal framed reel like the 4/0 Penn will beat out graphite any day for me.

repacked the braid on the baker intl 50s.  there was suddenly room for another 150 yards of 130 pound braid.  also, look at the drag curve.  this is more like an 80 pound reel.  strike is 35 pounds, but more importantly you want 50% at full, which is 40 pounds.  you could change it, but it would involve filing down the cam by hand and reassembling the reel to check it constantly.  it would take all day.   Undecided
