    So if I understand this right, the Leviathan has more complex taper, so it should turn over the big flies better? or Lc 13 will do the same regarding turn over big flies and also shoot better distance?

    All of them have so much mass and density that fly turnover isn't a problem. Smoothness of casting for sure, distance if your casting isn't that great may be increased because of the smoothness, but turnover isn't a problem. Just keep your leader "saltwater sinking line short".

    This is very interesting content, as I'm going to be fishing out of SoCal with my eldest son, on his boat later in August. I still don't have a rod and reel set up for it, but, will by then. He sent me some pics of the blues he caught this last weekend, the biggest was 40#! on gear. I just want to get into 'em with flies.


    BTW: Thanks for the vid link Yuhina.

    I assume you mean bluefin tuna, not bluefish, right?
