This is Capt. Brant's #1 preferred reel for serious stand-up fishing for Bluefin Tuna. The Tiagra 50WLRSA has an awesome drag system that can easily handle drag settings upwards of 50 pounds and the reel holds 600 yards of line (500 yards of 150# Power Pro Braid/100 yards of 200# Momoi Diamond line). Teh 2-speed function is critical for cranking in a giant when circling under the boat. Capt. Brant personally uses this reel coupled with the OIFC Custom Bluefin rod to make for a lethal stand-up fishing combo.
