yep I hear you I use trevala rods rated for 20-50 have a lot of bend . But Greg’s Looks like a Calcutta on a bass rod. Hook a 100#+ thresher it’ll smoke those gears. I’ve done it with tuna but I guess those salmon rods are meant to bend like that for downriggers

one thing I have noticed is with bigger fish sometimes the harder you pull the harder they do.

100% on time on the PRIDE I had my line wrapped with some googan on 50# BFT . He literally cut my line and had me hold the spectra in my hand with the fish on it . He said what ever you do donít pull and it just stayed there in a stale mate till he respliced my line pretty trippy

I have been spooled exactly 1 time on my Calcuttas, and never had the drags burn up on a fish. I have done the 100#+ Thresher, and probably well over 200# BSB on those little Calcuttas. But those are inshore species I am not interested in targeting anyway. The rods I use are not intended for downrigger fishing either, but I can understand your confusion.
