Tarpon Reel

Hey folks

I have owned a Penn 4G reel for a couple years now, I use it on my home waters to fish mostly for salmon and steelhead. I have developed an affliction for tropics fly fishing and I am looking to hear from any of you with thick enough forearms that may have used this reel on a single hand rod (it's bloody heavy). I am thinking specifically about building up a tarpon rod, and hoping to use this reel. I have no desire to drop any more cash on another reel, this one certainly is a workhorse, but of the Clydesdale variety.

thanks in advance.
