Conventional wisdom says: Never take a knife to a gun fight and when you're tackling big critters like the ones this reel was designed for, then I think that's really sound advice. The 12 Plus was designed for fish that are notorious for being really hard to handle. GT's or Tuna, just to name a few, can undo your average gear in a fraction of a second. You will not find a better fish fighting tool on the market for these situations. Oh yeah, it's also great for big spey applications.
