The BX500 is available in slow (4:1) and fast (6:1). The decision about which one to pick is yours but unless you need for some specific reason the fast one (ie: fishing for fast pelagics) we recomend the 4:1 gear, much more suitable for the majority of the species, especially if you like to jig underarm in short jerks
More than 24lb of drag available.
Please bear in mind that the line capacity as per the manufacturer's specs is measured with the spool filled at its highest peak. Thus, for jigging, we suggest you leave some room in case of an uneven spooling and for a long leader.
