The Marquesa 16 is a popular choice for anglers who jig for kingfish, amberjack and samson fish with 50lb or 80lb braid. It's versatile and can also be used for trolling, bottom fishing and live baiting. Rock fisherman casting baits or lures will appreciate its castability and the swift 6.1:1 gear ratio makes it suitable for high-speed spinning tactics. The MA16’s credentials are proven in the field, too. Commercial kingfisherman Drew Mudaliar has reported that his Fin-Nor Marquesa MA16 lever drag reel has landed more than two tonne of kingfish. Mudaliar’s commercial fishing operation in Eden, NSW, specifically targets kingfish using metal jigging techniques. Mudaliar said: “It’s an excellent reel. My Marquesa MA16 has now caught more than two tonne of kingfish on jigs—and that’s straight out of the box before a first service. It has already proven to be better than any reel our operation has used regardless of the cost.” “What impresses the most with the Marquesa is that it has done a mountain of heavy work and its function remains as new, which is as good as any reel I have used.” “Its quality of manufacture, lightness and ease of use is impeccable. I employ some avid fishermen and we fight over this reel. The marriage of the lever and preset drag operation is far better than any other reel I have used.” said Mudaliar. “I run 80lb braid on the MA16 and fish with the drag set at about 10kg. We lock down our fish and get them in as quickly as possible. It can land up to 50 fish per working day. The drag has remained smooth and reliable, the reel is showing minimal wear and tear and is still going strong. I’m impressed how it’s handling the heavy-duty commercial work,” said Mudaliar.
