Deep spool, lots of power

I go up to lake of the woods in Canada a few times every summer for muskie fishing [i'm mostly a bass guy at home] and got this in the 7.6:1 to gear up for the new season, i've taken it out a few times on my home lake to get the feel of before this years trips and oh man i'm in love already! Spool goes forever so i've been using to chuck big swimbaits and bladed a-rigs and have been killing it with moderate - fast retrieve. I plan to mostly use it on my big muskie maribou spinners and muskie swimbaits.
