Hi guys. I have a question. I have a Penn Senator 114-H I want to use as a kite reel. I have 500 yards of 80Lbs braided line I’m putting on it but I know it won’t fill it up at all. Would you recommend using 60lb mono as backing?
And a lot Longer To Reel In! Get some type of power assist for the winding in. Or put one of those power handles that they put on when deep fishing for rockcod, (way back in the days).Stick with the 500 yards of 80. Having the spool half full will give you more cranking power when winding it in. When the wind kicks up it will make life a lot easier
