You should be fine. I have seen lots of nice fish caught with that reel. 100 lb tuna? I'd upgrade, but for most of the fish you catch, it will be fine. You will beat fish with the drag and capacity. As for rods, I do like my trevala xxh. Look at spinal and star plasma too. My next rod will be a black hole cape cod 250gr. They are awesome but cost about 350-400 bucks. Good luck!
