Just be sure not to overtighten the knob or you can damage the pinion bearing, and as previously mentioned you only adjust the preset knob when you have the lever pulled back into freespool. Also you...

Straight braid to swivel is a no-no for me. I get noticeably more bites with 15-20ft of 50lb fluoro above the swivel plus it gives you better abrasion resistance. 50lb line is plenty big enough line...

You're obviously very unfamiliar with how fishing these shrimp boats works and I won't hold that against you. You drive along side them while they're dragging their nets and cast your bait directly...

They work well for light trolling, live bait trolling, and freelining. Kings especially but also mahi, sailfish, blackfin, etc. They can be used for bottom fishing but they are not intended for that...

It's MXL not MLX and I'm almost certain you didn't buy 4 MXL RAPTORS for $700. Why don't you just let the OP try and sell his reels? They are no longer made and are worth quite a bit of money....

Each one of those lights draws 2.5 amps so one set of 6 lights draws 15 amps. It looks like you have approximately 10ft of 16ga wire from the furthest light to your quick connects. Then you said you...

Pretty sure he was talking about handle play when he said backlash, not bird nesting the reel.

Most lever drags use only dogs so the handle has some play/slop in it and people who jig don't like...

They make a new version of it called the US113N and it's made in the USA. I had one and it was a great bottom reel. The flimsy spring on the dogs is the only complaint and its a tad on the heavy...

I try and pull them out whole. They're hard to deal with in small pieces. Batter them up in some seasoned cornmeal and drop them in some grease... they're better than french's fried onions....

Fishing very high drag with lever drags (especially exceeding the max rated drag of the reel) tends to crush the pinion bearings. In star drags you can beat the star as tight as it will go and fish...

I would set it around 12-15lbs at full which should be 8-10lbs of drag at strike and fish it with 40lb line (or bigger) and only fill it up about 2/3rds to 3/4 of the way. If you don't have a scale...
