You can use it for bringing in weed if you do it correctly, which is lifting the rod and winding down which puts very little pressure on the reel and would certainly stop you stripping the gears.

Which is why I used the term "winching in weed"

Got one about a year ago from the classifieds on her for fifty quid, mint comdition, and had no probs at all with it, great reel. As for the reel and pump retrieve, i try to do that with all my reels even the heavy ones, less stress the better in my opinion.
