The Battle is spooled with 30# Power Pro tied to a 20# fluoro leader. I pulled the specs on the B4000 and it has a max drag of 13 lbs, so I was WAY outgunned compared to the Okuma Trios that I normally fish. My little T20 has 18 lbs and the T40 has 20.
It may not seem significant until you're sitting there watching line disappear off the spool. On the first run I watched the spooled diameter shrink about 1/2 inch in just a few seconds.
I cut the section out of the video where I pulled my stake out pole and moved the yak out to floating and just held it in place with my feet over the side. I could see the spool with about 10 wrap left before she stopped on the second long run.
The total run time on that fish was just under 20 minutes from hook set to carrying the net back to the yak.
