I don't really think its appropriate for strippers, not the right tool to cast $ bills at g-strings, but it would be a very fine tool for light casting to stripers.

I would load that reel with 14lb mono or 20lb braid and use it to plug the marshes without any trepedations whatsoever. It would also make a nice light bay clam chumming reel.

Keep the spool bearings clean and lubed with a drop or two of Reel-X and you'll get good service out of that reel.

best, Lep
