Default Kristal xl 605 capabilities?

This reel is touted as a kite or teaser reel. What’s the issues with using this reel for deep dropping or wahoo? It seems to have plenty of drag.

s l o w

but other than that I don't see any reason you couldn't deep drop with it. It certainly has the drag necessary for HST, but the spool is also pretty well hidden so you gotta watch it like a hawk if HST. At least on an LP with no clicker you can see the side of the spool spinning pretty easily.

I'd recommend the 621 the smaller Kristal is too slow. The sharks will eat all your fish.
