answer 1
I have the RA30 with lines from 8 to 15 lb test and caught several basses from 3 to 5 lb easily. I guess that with the right line (maybe a braid) and the right rod ( I have a 7 feet BPS Graphite Series ) should be ok even for walleyes

answer 1
Front drag reels are lighter and less bulky than the rear drag reels. I found the rear drag reels more convenient when fishing in unknown spots where I set the drag quite loose and tighten when Ii understand what kind of fish I hooked

answer 2
front drags tend to be smoother and don't get easily gunked up with dirt, sand and stuff when you're bank fishing

Nothing. It only means where you adjust the drag from on the reel.
