I am looking into a calcutta 400 for bassin in the bays. I was wondering if that reel would be to light for eeling around the inlet and jigging with 20 lb. mono or braid. Do you guys like the levelwind. I would rather be without it. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

Thats the handle with the one wooden grip right. I definately would buy that along with the reel. Thanks a lot.
I have a Newell 229 also and I was wondering, if I had them both lined with 20LB. with the drag at around 6 1/2lb. (I set all my drags with a spring scale) how would the Newwll be able to stop the fish any bettet? Thats the part I dont understand. Is it the gears?
