Tuna' you make another great point here which speaks to using the right gear for the intended target. I understand the Marathon Humps hold tuna, dolphin, and the occasional marlin. That's a pretty wide range to be prepared for with one reel if you want to enjoy the play of the tuna and still be able to handle the marlin.

That said, while the 345 GTi packs a powerful punch, I can certainly see your point about the reels designed for big game fish. And to your point about casting you made above, man that is so true. I'm not a caster type anyway except with heavier spinning reels, but I've noticed when servicing the levelwinds versus the senators the freespool difference is remarkable.
