I currently have mine loaded with 30lbs braid and I have about 550yards on it. I didnt wanna max out the reel as Ive noticed on other conventional baitcasters the fuller the spool the better chance of backlash!

Question

How light of lures could this reel cast?

I was a bit concerned about if reel could cast lighter lures like a bucktail or small twitchbait. I would be using it for musky.

answer 1
Remember the heavier the line he heavier the lure needed to cast it,however, if using a light bait you can compensate by spooling your reel with braid, its casts better then mono with the larger diameter. However with this reel id stick to 1 oz. to 3 oz. as with mono it takes a considerable effort to move the line off the spool.

This real will not be suited for lighter baits try the Revo Toro 50 series I am sure you would like it

Question

Is a 4.2 to 1 gear ratio to slow for muskie fishing?

I want to purchase this reel for muskie fishing, but I thought the gear ratio might be a little slow, espesially for lures like cowgirls, since I'm used to fishing with a 6.4 to 1 gear ratio.

Think of the lower gear ratio as more of a "winch" design it gives more torque for fighting larger fish. The slower the retrieve the less strain on your line of choice. I know when bass fishing a 6.4:1 - 7.1:1 is the ratio of choice because they are as hefty!

Yes I think it is.
If you want a bit faster like in the five's try the Revo Toro Winch or just the regular Toro 50 series but it would cost more money for the two

Brake knobs

I noticed there is a knob on the left and right side plates. Are they both brake adjustment knobs? How do they work together?

I noticed they are for spool tension, however the one of the left side of the reel is more of the centrifugal control. and the handle side if more of a lubrication point.

they should work together one is the tension and I believe the other is the brake adjustment

China! If this was made in sweden it would be a $500+ Reel. But when checking the real out I noticed it feels the same as any reel made in America or Japan, as the Shimano's!
