I think the ESA guys use it on their offshore big game set ups.  Remember Mark De La Hey saying last week that his SLT50W was spooled with 350m 80lb mono topshot and 500m 80lb P Line Braid backing, used for trolling for Marlin - last weeks show me thinks.  Sounds reassuring???

Come to think of it, I now seem to recall the ESA land based (r&s) guys losing one or two big fish while on their backing because "their braid parted" - must have been the Kingfisher?
