Default I.M.O.- this is a myth

I can't speak about Penn reels, never owned one. I have caught hundreds of kingfish, dolphin, blackfinn tuna, and wahoo on my Shimano calcutta 700's. Lots of them in the 40 -50 LB range. My personal best is a 62 LB bull dolphin. I have never seen a fish that could outrun the levelwind.

Tight Lines,
Bob
