            This reel is the reel that sets the standard for landlocked Striped Bass Reels. it is absolutely the best reel for fishing for them, bar none. The 6500 will never let you down

                  this reel is great for pike and small muskies. the best line for it is 20- 30lb braid. if you are doing serious muskie fishing i would reccomend a 7'6" gander mt muskie rod with eather a shimano calcutta te or b series reel. put on some mono backing and 80lb tuf-line. with this combo and 131lb+steel leader can handle a 1-8oz lure. the garcia reel is a great reel but it is hard to cast util you are use to casting it with braid .otherwise good choice
