I have one coupled with Shimano Grappler, works well. They feel a little funny with any load on them, but once they load it's fantastic. I prefer to my JM PE7 and Super Tornado.

Hey I know this is an old post but wondering what everyone's thoughts are on the current reels available, I'm looking at the new saltiga leverdrag reels for jigging and livebaiting on a twisted sista L rod. Any thoughts on these reels? Or should I go maxel like everyone else... 🤔 I have also seen an accurate obsidian but can't find any info on them... any advice for a Newby jigger who wants a reel for around the $600-800 mark...

If you are targetting Kingfish, you need stopping power.  You can really only get that amount of drag power with a twin drag reel e.g. Accurate, Maxel, Jigging Master.    Look for a reel that feels comfortable inhand, has a decent long crank arm and comfortable off-set knob, doesn't make disturbingsounds when retrieving, has a decent warranty and local servicing. 

The Twisted Sista L rod suits a PE4 size reel.  Look out for Maxel Transformer F50CH to fit the bill and worth exceeding your budget for.
give it death!
