I've got two 320s I use for baitfishing for stripers and blackfish, had them about 15 years. They are the original ones with the graphite line guides. They have landed hundreds of fish and are still working fine. I do keep them well lubed and clean. We just got a new 321 as my son and I prefer left handed conventional reels. I think a 330 is a little large for what you are useing it for. I have used the 320 for reef fishing in Fla. and it handled Large grouper and amberjack in 200 ft of water just fine. I think they are a fine reel fot the money.
