Has anyone else looked into this reel for jigging tuna? Mostly 50-100lb class fish, but occasionally fish up to 200 show up. Significantly cheaper than the two speed Talicas, but not sure if the speedmaster will hold up

If you're looking to stay under the Talica price range, the Penn Fathom 2 speeds are,  in my opinion, the best 2 speed reels in the $2-300 range. I'm not a Penn fan either lol, just a fact.

Thanks Arthur. I’ll take a look at the Penn you mentioned. I did compare the speedmaster and a Talica side by side recently. I actually think the speedmaster would get the job done, but probably shouldn’t have even touched a Talica, significantly smoother reel. Made me want to increase my budget
