I'd like to hear how that works out. I thought of getting a 7000 or 8000 for tuna, but didn't think it was enough reel. At 25 lbs of drag it just might work.I have the 7000 and plan on using it for Jigging Tuna here in Jersey. It holds 500 yards of 50 lb braid (actually just shy of 500) If you are talking for striper and Mahi the 5000 is the way to go. You may even get away with the 4000. We use 25 lb test for mahi on medium action rods (10 to 20 lb Class) for Mahi and smaller spinning reals IE 3500 series reels and have caught Mahi upto 24 lbs with no issues. In short I think either the 4k or 5k would work for the purpose you plan on using it for.

My friend has a 5000 and it is plenty big enough for stripers and drum. The 8000 looks huge, it would be a great surf reel but probably really overkill for stripers. I am considering getting a pair of 6000's for inshore.I am looking to get a penn battle, and im having a hard time deciding which size, I have a shimano bait runner 6000 and was looking at the battle 4000 or 8000. Let me know what yall think, its for striper and inshore, maybe a mahi.
