Already have the BV-300 in the 5.1 ratio. Couldn’t help but pull the trigger on the older (2011) version of the Ocea Jigger in the power gear. I’ve already fluked and togged with the BV. It was effortless. Casts pretty well as well. Holds the same amount of line. I know it’s not anywhere near as smooth. I’m curious if it is indeed that much more powerful than the Ocea Jigger or are we just looking at drag numbers? Which will hold up better over time, which is more protected again bearing corrosion (rinsing down the reels after each use taken into consideration)? I know it’s apples to oranges in and lever vs star comparison. But for fluke, striped bass, tog, which is the better overall reel? And does the Ocea Jigger have enough power and drag to wreckfish with?
I'm a noob, so please excuse the post. Using a bv-300, is 30lb test super slick tied with an albright to 50lb flouro enough for diamond jigging striped bass? Is it better to jump up to 40lb? Should I be worried only having 250-270 yards of braid jigging in 80-100 feet of water? Not worried about the depth, I'm more worried about the bass taking off. But I'm assuming the bv has more than enough power and drag to keep that from happening.
