i use the reel for kings all the time in the boat. Lots of line capicity just not very "Strudy" the drag is sticky but functional. I love this reel. ya it feels flimsy but theres nothing like catching 20- 30 pounds mackrel on a small reel like that. Ive got it on a teramar rod and kill all fish with it! Ive caught big bull reds, mackrel, bonita, sharks, cuda's ajs, snapper, pompano, and even a 50 pound tarpon on it. in my openion its no where near as smooth as shimanos but for the line capicity i'll take it every trip i go on.
