I'm looking at getting some Tiagras for Yellowfin Tuna and Swordfishing. I plan on useing 80# Braid (Up for line reccomendations as well). From what I gather it looks like the 50WLSRA and the 80W have the following:
- Both have same drag capabilities at 40 lb max
- The 50WLSRA has a 3.1/1.3 gear ratio while the 80 has a 2.5/1.3 gear ratio.
- Both have 80# line reccomendations.
Wouldnt it be more beneficial to have the higher gear ratio of the 50 with the same drag specs as the 80? Is the only real advantage the line capacity? Thanks in advance for yalls input.
