Caught plenty of kings and aj on stretch 25 and 30 + so if the fish are that deep they should work.

the only time id even try those would be when we have a layer of $hit water on top of the blue..... kind of like right now- im sure there is a 20-30 foot layer of brown, then its clears up- so who knows they might work.

a Stretch 30 puts the hurt on a 50W, what will a Stretch 50 do? You'll have to cleat it off the boat, huh?

Drag Pressure I'm assuming he's referring to.



Stretch 30s are great for Wahoo as well as big Mahi, I'm not sure why people arent fond of them.

Agreed on the drag pressure pulling 30's at any "normal" offshore speed, expecially if you have to troll into the current at all. Pulled Stretch 30's on Shiumano 50W's and often times the drags would slip at times even when locked down pretty tight. had great luck with the pink 30's, but no way in heck I would try pulling a Stretch 50 unless I have a Penn 120W, but then, what's the point! Spend the money on an Illander or Marauder and be safe with something that works without un-needed pressure on the drag.
