Hi guys thanks for the reply
@ Glassy i also thought so and was thinking the 4500 with 50 lbs braid.
@ Dr H Hoffman just general size 8-15kg tuna and the odd big one that you get on the kzn coast.
Thinking of throwing a poper and swimming a live mackie are two .

Hi Supercab

Just keep in mind that the BG 5000 and 4500 are the same size reels. Only difference is the size of the spools.

Next size step down would be the 4000. Although I would think that the 5000 size drag would be better up to task for tackling those tuna.
