Default Sea Stryker Planer #4

I just got a #4 planer that is designed to be used in-line (the kind that you connect directly to the lure and reel, not the cleat on the boat). I have a Penn Special Senator 50/270. I am having second thoughts that this reel can really handle that much stress. I don't want to get all the way out there and find out that it doesn't work. Anyone else use an in line planer? No downriggers so this is my only way to get the lure down.

I use either a 6/0, or a 50 or 70 wide for mine.
i think ur prob will be if the drag can hold it and then how long will the rod hold up too.

I use a #3 on my Penn 330GTI and 100lb power pro and a 10ft flour leader on the other end to my bait. It does very well with it at normal trolling speed. I run it with a skirted stinger rig and a dead cig or threadfin. You never really know if it works well unless you catch a fish. Only used it twice so far on short trolls and with only one hit so far.

Deersniper you use 100lb test on a size 30 reel? Am I understanding you right?
