I know where you're coming from!! LOL
I have no experience with this reel, but since she likes her 33 and you need something bigger, this might make sense:
I have an 808 I use for catfish...it will handle anything she throws at it. I've caught a bunch of channels and a few flats on mine...fish up to 20lbs...its a great reel for the money.
