If that happens, then you have 2 or more broken rods. What do you use or could I make/attach (simply, I'm not that handy)...

    BX2-500 vs 600N: Line Capacity - in reality, not specs online

    Thanks! As long as I can get >500 yards on the 600N, I'm okay with that. I have 50# on the 500, and it holds a ton, maybe 600+. 40# on the 400, and it holds 500 yards. I fish these reels, long-range, where 100-150-even200 yards soaks happen; so maximizing line capacity is my goal.
