where is the fun if you keep everything stock and on its limits?
I was just going to type the same thing.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Ok... What is the "Straight Six" of the reel world?... Most all reels have an "Achilles Heel" somewhere.. Even the Penn US 113... You guys don't do any little upgrades on your 6s?

Prolly the 6/0 with stock aluminum Penn frame and a steel main. Try and break it and let us know how it comes out.

Just start with a reel from this millennium!  Just Fugetabout  those Squidder/Jigmaster/Senators and it’ll all be good!

Shimano 20/40 or Diawa SL50SH. Grin Grin

Just another question:- does a fish  exert more pressure on the reel when you can hold it with a locked drag OR if you tighten your drag just to the point where it can take some line?

I think the latter!

I think the latter!

The most  pressure will be exerted when none can be released, so alocked drag wins. Potential wear or damage  on specific components is a different story.

The scientific answer!

Mainly from Yellowtail fishing I know that it is usually possible to hold a 20 lb fish with 60 lb  line, strong rod  and locked drag and when fishing from shore.
The fish is not able to swim other then sideways nor get its head around facing away from the angler and perhaps its tail cavitates like a boat propeller.

The  moment the drag gives only slightly you can no longer hold it and if there is structure nearby you have probably lost the fight.
