Thanks Guys. It was fun to revisit, I did not realize so much time had past since we did this together. So much has changed. This is a great place.

That is quite the reel.
With all that drag, there aren't many fish that can be caught with stand up gear that you couldn't handle with that thing.
Well done.

I did a test with it today. The weakest link is me. 50 pound class tackle and a forty pound weight.

 Nice job on the tank Mike. Those custom inserts from Adam are unbeatable.

 You should also test it with the spool 3/4 full, which would better replicate real life scenario. An almost empty spool will always give higher drag #'s.

Agreed, but I felt this was good enough since the reel is goiing to be a shelf queen. I just needed to know it was strong and it is. Stronger than me.

The final photo was my last ditch pull. The weight won but the reel and line held.

Coooool!
Both photos are great, but I give an edge to the 1st one, with your mouth open.
I have an Accurate Jigmaster Magnum(113H guts/spool shafts). I retired it for 2 reasons even though itís a bit beat-up: A classic reel that isnít that common. And, I found-out from Ted that there are Pro Gear Jigmaster size reels with 113H guts and a better engineered gear-side plate to frame fit/attachment.

The new updated reels on today's markets have left me in the dust. It seems that improvements happen faster than you can build a reel.
