    How many yards of 200# spectra on a Penn Int. 80ST

    I originally put 1200 yds of JB hollow I then took off about 200+ yards. I use it for a kite reel and sometime when you have to reel really fast to take up the slack line at the initial bite, it's pretty easy to high stack it. 1000 yds leaves a little room for human error.

    I have an Andros 12slla and have caught a lot of wahoo with it. You don't need to shift into low gear, I can grind them in with it in hi. I used it at Guadalupe on an 8' Predator with 60# too. No issues with the reel at all.
