135 lb Bluefin Tuna on a Spinning Reel

It takes a really tough and powerful spinning reel to beat a 135 lb Bluefin Tuna.

So what kind of spinning reel is up to this challenge?

….the Shimano Twinpower SW 14000 – Buy One Now

The Shimano Twinpower SW spinning reel is the little brother of the magnificent Shimano Stella SW. The Stella is the largest spinning reel for saltwater big game fish. However the Twinpower is also a heavy weight contender that can tackle tuna, sailfish, marlin and sharks. The Twinpower SW can hold 400 yards of 50 lb braided line and has a maximum drag of 55 lbs. The Twinpower is quite a bit less expensive than a Stella SW. It’s a great compromise.
