The reel is solid.
I used Torgue 200 for yellowtail and giant seabass/hapuka on the New Zealand trip last April. The drag was very good and it has pretty good cranking power even it is fast 6:1 gear ratio.
But I could get just over 20 lbs drag from the reel which is far from their advertisement. Also the weight of the reel is much heavier than their adivertisement too.
Check the max drag and reel weight yourself.
If you don't mind using over 30 oz reels, there are many alternatives.
