The innovative Magsealed main shaft delivers butter smooth performance while preventing water or dirt intrusion. The technology uses a Mag Oil that can be magnetically solidified similar to a packing on a boat’s propeller shaft. Oil smooth operation as well as a water and impurities barrier makes the design and function unparalleled. The Machined Aluminum handle is ergonomically correct and screws easily into the body. Six ball bearings and one roller bearing combine to create the ultimate in silky smooth operation.

These reels can work great with braid as well as monofilament lines from all top manufacturers. We personally recommend using braid as the mainline on top of some mono backing to use to stick to the spool and to fill the base layer of the spool with mono so you can save money on the braid.
We have tested a variety of lines over the years, and the 2 that seem to consistently score high for both breaking strength and casting distance are PowerPro & Daiwa's J-Braid 8 Grand.
For selecting the power rating to go with, it's best to go with a power that is in the recommended range for your reel of choice (range shown above in specs).
