Tica Team ST 568 G Big Game Fishing Reel

I have an upcoming trip to Hutan Melintang on 31 August - 2 September 2007. This would be my first deep sea trip and my longest trip on a boat. I usually go on a 2 Day 1 Night trip. This would be my first 3 Day 2 Night trip. I don't have any suitable reel for deep sea. Most of the people that I asked told me that a multiplier would be a more suitable reel compared to a spinning set. With that in mind, I decided to get a Tica Team ST 568 G Big Game Fishing Reel. Cheap and reliable.

Here are some features of the reel.
  • Drag lever provides you from "Free" to "Full" 144° of drag setting.
  • Warning click (outline click).
  • Adjustable power handle for saving power
  • Auto handle knob gives you quicker handle gripping.
  • Stainless steel drive gear and pinion.
  • 6 sealed stainless steel ball bearings.
  • Twin one way clutch roller bearings doubly ensure the anti-reverse mechanism.
  • Forged aluminum alloy spool.
  • Waterproofing system.
  • One piece aluminum alloy body.
Here are the specifications of the reel.
  • Model : ST 568
  • Line Retrieved/ Handle Turn : 31.1 in
  • Ball Bearings : 6BB + 2 RB
  • Gear Ratio: 3.7 : 1
  • Weight (oz) : 29.6
  • Line Capacity (lb/yard) : 25/580 30/480 40/345 50/260
I have loaded the reel with 500 yards of 50lb Fins PRT Braided line. Even after loading with 50 lb line, the spool still looks kinda empty. I guess the capacity is quite big. Maybe next time when I decided to change the lines, I will load it with more line.
