I have one. Too fast for anything else but Propbaits.

How effective is it on prop baits. At that speed I worry about the cranking power.

It's ok, not a bad reel and it's a 200 series, so man enough. When you're used to using a 7.1:1 and then use one of these babies, it's way too fast for spooks etc. unless you actually remember to tone the 'burn' down a bit!
Good on minnowbaits and jigs though.

Thanks for the reply Steve. Sometimes to much of a good thing is not good in the end. Had a chance to buy some at a good price but I still have no problems with my Shimano DHSV 200. I still think the cranking power on a big fish would be diminished at that high gear ratio.
