    7000 high speed is not a cowgirl reel. You are thinking of the 7000 c3i and that gets my vote.

    I assume that your talking about burning, in which I use a Trinidad 16n. If you want to get a bait moving easily, this is the ticket.

    I put a power handle on my Calcutta 400B.

    TE400 with power handle. I use Glittertail double 10s and my TI Dominatrix double 10s or Booty Tail double 13s.

    The Winch makes it easier to reel 'em in, no question, and seems to be holding up well. It seems to be a quality reel, and for those who want a slow, powerful reel, it appears to be a great choice. But if you and the muskies feel the need for speed you'll likely be wanting something else.

    I use the St. Croix Avid AC-300A for most twin-ten, etc., applications. I didn't like the Trinidad for super high-speed and am currently trying to form an opinion on the Daiwa Saltist.

    RE: To use Cowgirls 10's some 12's

    Well I am a bit limited on funds. I really cant go over 250 or so. I want to be able to burn 10's but yet not be cranking my guts out. I have a pile of 10's but at the moment I am using a 6500c3 and it is rough...Real rough!! I plan on using the c3 for other applications but am in need of some advice before I buy!! Is the St Croix easy to crank them in at mid-high speed? I am afraid if I go with the winch it will be too slow. but I have been told to only buy a 4:1 for 10's and up

    I would look on the swap page here or on muskiefirst for a used Trinidad. They usually go for 250 or less.

    You should be able to pick up a saltist for under $250, go on Muskiefirst and do a search under tackle and equipment. Tons of reviews on them. Otherwise I'd go with the gold!

    Steve how do the St Croix Avid's hold up to the big blades? I know that anti reverse bearing has really been a issue with those and the Diawas, just wondering if that was more from ripping and jerking baits.

    I typically have to have an anti-reverse fixed about once per year. (Not once each year for each of my reels, but once total among the six reels I'll have in play during the year.) I don't guide anymore, so the only person using my reels is me.

    What hurts them (or any reel, for that matter) is stopping the bait in mid-cast (bumping the handle forward before splash-down) or with a backlash, not ripping or jerking.
