You won't be disappointed with these reels.
I even fish the 6/nine for stripers but with gelspun in 50#. It's so thin the smaller reel holds miles of the stuff. This is my single hander setup for 7-9wt (bones to stripers). I go to the same reel 8/twelve for 10wt up or two-handers in 9/10wt. The 12wt two-hander gets the 9/thirteen.
If you want to hammer down the drag on these reels just follow the directions and use the included allen wrench. It's a one-time adjustment.
