I agree with you many people fail to realize the positive attributes of the larger spool diameter when you go from an 80-130. Much quicker retrieve and when you hook a "Screama" you want that capacity.

I get that reels out of the box today can all handle drag settings we only dreamed about 20 years ago and that a 16 can pull what a 50 used to. But if your going to use a chair or rod holder I'd much rather have a 130 over an 80W, stand up give me the 80W.
