@ Enigma, thanks for the info, you have definately answered some of my questions on the topic here, you mentioned the 400lbs cable windon? Just for some clarity, does your main line go straight onto the cable windon? How long is the cable windon?

@ Whaler, keep them pictures coming

Where do you guys get the 400Lb cable?
I don't recall ever seeing 400lb cable at a tackle shop?

Enigma hear what you say , I would probably swim a smallish smoothhound for a raggie in struisbaai , the pull must be very exciting.But wont go and look for sh!t further up the east coast.You are right when saying use at least tackle that have a chance.Dont poep against donderweer.

I pulled 15.5 kilos on my trini 40 out the box on a fully locked drag, with carbontex drag washers from whaler, i managed to pull 16.5 kilos, with line coming off the reel very smoothly between 8 and 10 kilos

Maybe we should ask the experts about the drag on the TRINI40. They should be able to give us more advice.
