Tomís 9/0 kit, alanís drag insert and handle, the bosses knob, SS gear and sleeve from pro challenger:

Trolled for a Mahi Mahi and I got lucky to get the hookup on my reel!  Overkill for such a fish but it was still very enjoyable putting one of these reels into use!  Everything performed perfectly!  Thanks everyone!

No such thing as over kill when you are trying out a beauty reel that one worked on and built !! Nice fish.

Nice catch and nice reel overkill or not. Next time hook a reel tester for fun. Good Luck

The boat had nothing but stock 9/0ís and as we walked down the dock everyone had the same in their boats.  Seems to be the standard. Could have been a lot more fine if I hooked it on the narrow 4/0.  Oh well there is always next time.

Good work on the reel and that fish.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.
