Should note that the FTH60LD2 is not a "100-pound reel", though of course many anglers may choose to go with 100 pound mono just for abrasion resistance etc.,
A lot depends on braid/mono brands, installation tension, and personal preference on fill-up level.
That said, I usually have our loaners set up with 400 yards of 100-pound Berkley Pro-Spec braid, which allows a 75-100 yard topshot of Berkley Big Game 80-pound mono.
Thanks. The FTH60 is in the same pound class as a FTH40. Its just bigger. I'm using the 60 as my trolling rig on the Excel and wanted the 100# abrasion resistance of the line. I wouldn't push the 40 or 60 past a 60 pound class reel. They are great reels. I have a slew of the Fathoms.
Thanks again. Tex.
FWIW...Just spooled my FTH60LD2 with 500 yards of 80# powerpro slick braid with 150 yards of Berkley big game 80# topshot. Just comfortable enough room left between the line and crossbars. Haven’t been spooled by a fish to see the braid yet so not sure if i will have enough room to reel back all without tension as when it was spooled by the shop. Caught big Mahi and Wahoo and the reel doesnt miss a bit...Set at 25lbs strike. Waiting for the big tuna for test.. Hope this helps.
