Medium overhead, bait/trolling/jigging:
Daiwa Demon Blood B56-6/8 ($389.99)
2-speed Talica 12 ($695.00)
65lbs braid


How would this outfit go for Vic/NSW shelf fishing? A fair bit undersized for marlin, swords and barrels?

the lack of line capacity for swords would struggle too?
Carl uses the Talica's and rates them extremely well. I haven't used that model demonblood but they have a good rep.

And it’d be an okay all rounder for them game species as well as northern species like wahoo, sails, doggys and Spaniards?
I've not fished for those species with an overhead but the feedback i'm getting is yes, assuming you're fishing from a boat and spooling with braid.

We use talica 25's for our big trolling outfits.
Back when we could travel to fish, we've had several Striped Marlin, and Bluefin to 115kg, knocked them over no stress.
For swording, I'd be stepping up to Talica 50, (we use tiagra 50's, which carry about 1000mtrs of braid/mono combined.
