I recently purchased the Seaborg 800MJ (just a smaller version of the 1200MJ) and used it first time on a Pulley Ridge trip on the Yankee Capt's. Only problem I had was the readout did not jive with the Capt's announcement of the depth. Capt said we were in 400', reel read 325'. FWIW, this reel took 850 yards of 65 J Braid. It varied in the depth difference at various depths and never read the depth the Captain was announcing. This problem did not make a difference for the application I was using it. I've read the PDF on line and can see no adjustment of calibration. I'll be calling Daiwa in the near future.
