Hi,
I've bought a fin nor offshore OS 95 and I would like to use it for bluefin tuna fishing! Is it a good reel? I've bought this model due to its capacity and also for its drag power.

G'day and welcome aboard strike,
I did one of these a while back and there's a good bit of dialogue about the construction and capacities here: http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=2788.0
Hope it's of some assistance.
Any queries, let us know.
Cheers, Justin

Thanks!
but I would like to know something more about the reel's durability and resistence, especially during hard fightings, like in tuna fishing.

It has CF already - three small on top of the spool and two large beneath - though they're not Carbontex.

It maxes at 60lbs, which would be enough for most applications.
I can't imagine hanging on to a lug-less spinner at those kind of settings though.
The only potential weak point (aside from the overall weight) would probably be the a/r pawl that binds against the inside of the rotor.
Tile suggested this system prevents twisting of the rotor shaft (which is a positive), but also thought the antireverse crown should have been made out of bronze with the option of replacing it if it wears.
Hope that's of some assistance.
Righto, Justin

If they are carbon fiber, just grease them with Cals drag grease and you should be fine.  Switching to Carbontex is not necessary.

G'day Strike,
Try Dawn at Smoothdrag: info@smoothdrag.com
Whether you'd notice a substantive difference between CF and C-tex, however, is up for conjecture.  Wink
The single anti-reverse pawl is probably the most glaring weak point.
All the best, Justin

can i do anything to improve this weak point?
just to be more specific...i would like to change the non CF disks...because there are some of them which are cotton made or stainless steel made...

Hello strike, how do you like that reel. Alan Hawk doesn't recommend it and I was just curious.

I like that reel because is cheap and it has a strong drag, and also because some italian fishermen are using it to catch bluefin tuna and they landed also 200pounds fishes without any trouble
