    So I got to Newell 338 it needed some line and I wanted to have braid with a Top Shot for throwing iron. The guy at Turner's wasn't too keen on putting braid on a graphite spool says I'm taking a chance of it popping which I understand but as long as you're not pulling the snot out of it should be okay?

    It was mono on plastic spools that was a problem decades ago when mono became popular. It stretches then rebounds back. Wind it tight on a plastic spool and it can break the spool when it expands. Spectra doesn't stretch so doesn't have that affect on the spool.

    I have 40lb mono over 80lb braid... I keep enough mono on mine to make full casts without getting into the braid. I cant stand when the splice comes through the guides mid cast...

    I have fished 40 on mine and it works just fine for full sized surface iron.

    I think the bigger factor would be what rod you are putting it on and what kind of jig you are trying to throw with it. I recently put it on a lighter rod and have kicked around the idea of downsizing to 30# and using it for a smaller jig setup.

    But if you want to use it as your main jig reel...just throw it on your jig stick and top shot it with 40# and you will be fine.

    I wouldn't take my gun to a tackle shop to get work done .I wouldn't take a reel to Turner's to get worked on.

    I've seen a newell spool split at the arbor seam. don't spin the spectra on Tuna Tight and you'll be fine. i run spectra on all my Newells.

    "Snug Tight" = Good 'Nuff. Long as it doesn't dig into itself...

    Proceed with caution and at your own risk and you'll be fine...
