    Hello everyone. I just bought this used Shimano Thunnus 16000F from Cabelas. I cant find any information about this reel. I paid $88 bucks. Was that a fair price? Is it a good enough reel to handle trophy size Flatheads? Thanks for any helpful information.

    That is a great price for it they run about $250. That reel is a fairly big real though. Good luck with it let us know how you make it out.
