I have 'heard' that people have taken small tuna on the big (20) ahab. Put some spectra on it and you should be alright.

they don't build these reels like they used thats for sure. I have 4 of the old ones. Back when they were built here in the US

Cabellas is advertising them for under $100.
Is the ST 30 a tuna reel?

I would say a small tuna, but that price is just to good to pass up!

I'd say with Shakespeare Ugly Stick Tigers you will have a great combo for Stripers. Others say it can be used for small tuna, too, but I have no first hand information on tuna. Maybe this summer!
