Btwn the speed of pelagic fish and also just reeling in heavy sinkers all day will ruin the reel in no time.
I wouldn't mind using one for fluking/striper fishing but would never PAY for one

it is possible to jigging with the shimano Tranx ??.... thank's, and what is the power of drag and capacity of line.
Max drag is 25 lbs and capacity is 270 yards of 65 lb test braid.http://fish.shimano....onal/tranx.html
For 500$ there are much better choices in proven jigging reels , like a JM or oceajigger 4000p that are BIG FISH KILLA'S .

JM guys are very innovative.
The reel makes me think. Is it better to crank with reel on top of a rod or under the rod like a spinning reel ? If you fight fish with a reel under a rod, you can fight with more stability. I think the reason they use a level wind for the reel is you can not use your finger to level the line using the reel under a rod.
Very interesting concept.
