Is there a design difference between Makaira 50 and 50W apart from the topless frame of 50? I was planning to get a 50II but if 50W II has better bearings, I would go for 50W II

Thanks

virtually no difference at all.  the makaira 50 will hold 700 yards of 130 pound braid.  if you need more line capacity that than, go for the wide version!!!! Grin

My Penn 50 SW had around 850 yd of 65# JB Solid and 350yd of 50# Ande Monster topshot with room for another 100-150yd. I guess it will fit the 50II. If I have to remove 100yd topshot, 1100 yd line is still way more I can wind in a single go (even with no fish on!)

I guess I'll stick with 50II. After all, 'Topless' sounds and looks romantic! Cheesy

Cheers!
