    I understand the MXL Raptors (and G2) have the frames machined to allow a slightly larger diameter spool than the regular MXL how much 60lb jb hollow will I get on a raptor MXL (and G2)and how much on a JX ( I believe all versions of the JX have the same capacity)
    Filling to the top in each case.

    Personally id go with the Raptor. I have a regular G2 and it holds a stupid amount of 65lb line on it.

    I recently sold my MXL Raptor, but I believe it held 400 yards of 65lb izor filled to the top. I also think the capacity differences between the MXL Raptor and the JX Raptor are negligible. Biggest fish I caught on the MXL was a 75lb yellowfin, the reel did it’s job, but it was very tough to turn the handle in low gear when the fish was doing circles about 20’ from the boat, I would have much prefered the JX at that point in time.

    It’s pretty much a wash between the 2. The MXL Raptor is rated at 550 of 50# while the JX is rated at 400 of 65#.
