Reaching greater depths

Serious bit of kit that. Guessing the rod stays in the holder during the fight?

Yes stays in but we also use hand held versions in shallower water bellow 1000m. I have one big spin outfit that I deep drop to around 400m.

Commercial or pleasure/recreational fishing?

Pleasure, though its considered a more commercial setup. I must admit I prefer the lighter gear but the tops of the canyons are about 1800m deep, dropping to around 3000m . At night many of those deepwater species head up to the surface following squid which makes them easier to target. This allows us to fish deep during the day, I don't expect to keep it long, more a case of the price was right and if I can turn a few $$ it will be gone.
