Hi Guys

I am at the early stages of getting gear to attempt kite fishing. Got the above reel from my boet, and it's barely been used. We fish Mazeppa, and as complete kite novices I doubt we will be dropping baits much beyond 350m.

Research thus far revealed that this reel does not come with the cork drag system that everyone complains about, and that it can hold about 400m of 0.6mm. It was mostly used as a boat reel. Can anyone varify?

Is it capable of taming one of Mazeppa's beasts? If not, is it capable of handelling the kite? I'm a little worried after reading about kites busting up reels?

Would appreciate any info, incl possible upgrades to the reel to make it capable.
