interesting post, my cousin and I were arguing about this just the other day. He asked why ALL reels don't have levelwinds? I told him 2 reasons: line capacity and free spool. He quickly replied that with today's braid technology, line capacity is no longer a problem and that they should be able to make a levelwind mechanism that can handle the rigors of tuna, marlin and the like. I respectfully disagreed saying it was just something else to break with a possible record fish on the line, but I think he made some valid points. So...what say the members of THT? Why CAN'T I have a levelwind on my 50W?
