Location: Berkeley Pier
I have used the 310 in the past and really liked it for a big levelwind. I used it for sturgeon and general pierfishing. Never got any sturgeon over 50" on it but many guides use them for sturgeon fishing for keeper-size from what I have read utilizing 50# braid. Others I know like them for salmon fishing. What happened to me was that I got a few good batrays at Berkely Pier, the pawl mechanism broke two times, and I finally gave up on the reel and use my jigmasters, squidders, GS series Penns. So, I like the reel..but I would stay away from batray fishing with it...unless you want to be continually replacing the levelwind.
