it will be a good reel for tournament casting as its the main reel they use. you will however have to start tweeking and adjusting it to get extra bit of distance from it as you get better.

you say your paying good money for it so has it already been altered for field casting?

the reel is the one most use for tourneys take the brake blocks out, leave the magnets in usually 4 flush bearings and put red rocket fuel in.

set end float and your ready to wind the line on remebr the first 40 yds or so is the bit that balances the spool if it runs smooth leave the first 40yds on there for good.

no real need for conversions yet m8 to be honest the jury is out wether they work or not, i know i had loadsa of 260 + casts on the set up i have just explained.

good luck and enjoy it its a great sport and improves your fishing options no end
