While it would not have been my first choice if I had known what I was going to hook, My 16VSX loaded with 80 lb. braid worked flawlessly for this 277 lb. Yellowfin caught on the Excel, January 20,2019. I would drop a bait in on this reel anytime.

I can confirm that the 16VISX would not be my first choice for a fish of this caliber, but except for some scary moments regarding line capacity, it handled my 313 pounder like a champ. With the size of the tuna regularly being caught off San Diego these days, its just about a "Don't leave the dock without it" part of the arsenal.

Those two pictures alone will sell that reel.  Nicely done.

Yep...by-catch.  Way to go.  Tough reel.  Dominick

That is some cow of a Yellowfin, those "sickles" are spectacular.
I don't think they get bigger then about 240 lb down here.

Congratulations

Out of curiosity what is the line capacity of this reel for 80# hollow core?

"Catalogue spec" is 765/80, though there will of course be substantial variation depending on line brand, installation tension, and personal preference on fill-up level.
Alan may have some specifics with a few different brands, and of course he uses LOTS of tension when winding!
