Quote from: thorhammer on May 23, 2022, 12:54:30 PMI caught a 250 lb, eight foot shark on a bone stock 114HLW with 50lb Ande. I was in really good shape at the time, and I put enough heat on the Magnaflex that it permanently torqued the solid glass out of line. The reel never wavered. With heavier line I'd have just cranked up. Short of a really large shark, or maybe a big YFT, the 6/0 will do 99.9 percent of what is needed just fine off Va. coast, at reasonable cost and easy tempermant. My 0.02 from NC. 
On a headboat a 4/0 power arm and knob is needed and standard 6/0 is what's on the boat already and 9/0 is for bluefin,,shark,,,marlin it still works but two speed is better,,,, :)
