Just got to fish this reel on a phoenix rod(700x4h protype) during a long range trip on the RR3. Fished it with a vetical jig, with amazing succes as well as with a big horse mackie. Where it really shinned was on the kite. It retrieved faster than the boat power drill for the kite rod, which made it extemely usefull for gaing line 3.2:1. Second gear 2.0:1 had amazing torque for the amount of line it was retrieving, and when you dropped into 1:1, it just wenched. Very impressive reel.

I was playing with that reel last year and it is an incredible piece of machinery,but in my experience after using the TRX 50w I see no use for such a big reel.

TRX is a great reel. However, for kite or hi-speed vertical jigging for cows. I would go with the 80, not enough line for the kite imho.
