I used it for jigging the ditch a few times and I had no problems throwing 6-7 oz. jigs out to the middle or so.  I think the sweet spot for me was around 5 oz.  It will throw an SP or Hydro in a pinch, but it doesn't load great under 2 oz.  I now fish a Rainshadow SU1265 (spinning) which I confidently throw 5 oz. jigs with,  and the ocean master is definitely a beefier blank.  If you're chunking, you could do 3oz maybe 4oz and a pogie head and be fine. There does exist an older version of the Oceanmaster, built on a different blank, which may have cast differently.  Hope that's satisfactory!

At over 40" per turn it was great for jigs at the canal.  Once you're done with your drift you don't have to burn your arm off cranking them back. Also,

for chunking it can be advantageous to have a high hear ratio to keep your rig out of snags on the retrieve.  I'm a fan.  SS drive gears on this are a good choice for a high hear ratio because they stand up to torque well.  If your fishing plugs from the beach it would also be fine as it's about the same speed reel as a saragosa.  Boat fishing deep water, high gear ratios are also advantageous for getting your rig back up quick.
