    im sure this has been discussed numerous times. but ill ask anyway, i was looking through the fishing closet and i found a 11 eagle claw naked. so i bought a shakespeare tidewater freeliner for it the biggest one bass pro had. my main set ups are abu 6500c3's and i have one okuma baitrunner. now the shakespeare. soi geuss what im asking. will this reel get the job done. on those big flattys and blues. it wont be used that often mainly as a back up or a loner. i did a lil research and not many people speak highly of them. money isnt an issue. so for those who have had expereince with them let me know what u think of them. if its a waste of money. ill defenitly exchange it and upgrade to another okuma or maybe even a shimano. again all good and bad feedback will help me make my decision
