@ Okuma
What is the "max drop weight" ? From the reel specs I saw this is not listed - neither on other different brands.
What is listed is
Traction  Kg. 14
Fish traction  Kg. 80

Its still not clear enough for me.
When you have 2 or more fishes hooked its easy to add 1 or 2 kg to the weight apart from the fish pulling action. So this means that the reel may not handle that?

I'm asking this because I have the Miya X4 and use a weight of 1.25 or 1.5kg. But there is nothing listed in the manual about "max drop weight".

Well, I have the kristal fishing XL95.... it's a down wrigger but I still use it for deep drops and I find it good aswell......... and takes 4 to 5 min only to reel up 400 mt of braid line with 1.25 Kg of weight on it.

I have a kristal fishing 410 too now and its a monster and nothing can stop it. Only drawback conpared to the Miya is speed control which I will be adding soon.

if you will make the variable speed it is best to use the blue bigger spool

u can fish at night daytime rainy or dry weather.....down at 500 mtrs wont make much difference whats happening in the surface.....What weight did ta Bormla suggest u use at that depth. I am sure he will advice you if you ask him. Regarding where to go fishing....well its a matter of watching your depth finder and if u either see fish or at least see difference in depth ...give it a go...I dont think anyone is going to tell you where to catch them as they are being raided by a lot of people using electric reels....Please dont use the system of continuos fishing in the same place ....give the fish time to recuperate...catch a couple and move on to a different place....goood luck

Thank man he suggested 1 kilo weight but i think xl 640 is not good for deep drop bottom fishing because it has no variable speed and ive done some research it says kite fishing i hope i havent been fooled into buying it!

Variable speed isn't really necessary if the clutch is good.
