    I just used a bv2-500 a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it -- so light and yet powerful! I liked it so much, I immediately ordered a 600n. I plan to use this reel for yoyo / wahoo and perhaps some bait with 50lb / 60lb topshots. I'm trying to figure out if I am going to put 65lb or 80lb braid on it. I would love to hear from others who have already made this choice: 65lb? 80lb? Are any of you stacking two different diameter braids for more capacity? If so, what connections do you use? Thanks in advance guys!

    I would put 80 braid on it. Guys use that reel w short 80lb top shots. Not that much difference between 65 and 80 braid. Bettor to be safe. You really want to wind on a Wahoo and the Yellow Tail don't care.
