Default torsa 40 vs. torsa 30

hey guys, i am trying to decide between a torsa 30 or the torsa 40. The Torsa 40 seems a little heavy (36.1 oz), and it really doesnt hold that much more line than the 30 does. Any suggestions or opinions on it will be appreciated.

What kind of opinions are you looking for? I've got both, and they are both great reels - basically identical except for the size, and what size you get depends on what you want to use it for.

I love my torsa 30. I can put it in the trolling spread, deep drop, and jig for tuna. Last year I jigged up a 170 lb BFT. The 30 does not have brackets for a harness but with a get strapped bracket, it solves the problem.

I've got 30's with the Get Strapped brackets. They'll put a hurting on 100lb tuna all day. Pretty much take the fun out of everything else, though!
