Ok, I am Not going to Argue with You........  I just wanted anyone else that might read this thread the problems that can arise..........It is this Simple...........  If we are Talking about throwing Swimbaits then 100 and 200 size reels will not hold up to throwing 3-8 oz baits....... The best Big swimbait reel built is a Shimano Calcutta......   

30-40lb Stripers were Common For us untill the Golden Algae Killed most of the stripers out in the Brazos river lakes.

You Might Google  Capt. Shawn Grant..............  You will Find I have a Little Experience in the Salt too.  ;)  and with fish that are a sight bigger than 40lbs.

Just Curious what Test and Brand Line are you Throwing.  :-\

The Revo STX and MGX come in a 8:1 and a 7:9:1 respectively. MGX only has about 12lbs of drag, but the STX can pump out 20lbs of max drag. Way more than any bass fisherman would ever need IMO.
