Hi all, I'm looking to do mainly light tenya or light jigs. Have a ~PE1.5 rod. At the same time, looking forwards to doing a rompin trip so looking to get a reel that would work with heavier gear/line.
I understand that 301HG has a synchronised level winder which is what I'm attracted to as it'll prevent and unnecessary line stress or breaking the levewind if some thing big comes along.
Problem is that when dropping the jig/tenya there'll surely be some losses of energy / slowing down of the fall rate due to the energy needed to move the levelwind. Is it significant? Or are the gear smooth enough that it'll not be that noticeable compared to the 201HG.
Mainly using 40-80g tenya on PE1.2 in SG waters.
201HG doesn't have a snychro levelwind I think? So it might be a problem if encountering larger / heavier species in Rompin.
I guess if money is no object, getting both would be ideal. heh heh.
Any advise from folks who have handled both these models before? Anyone tried the 301HG with light jigs around the 40g range?
