Looks like it’s rated for 260 yds of 100# mono… I’ll let you convert that to 200# braid. I wouldn’t want to use it for anything requiring 200#! The Fathom 60 is an 80# reel if trolling.

How much #200 hollowcore will the New Penn Fathom 80 2 Speed LD hold?

(FTHII80LD2)​



Like all Fathoms, the number indicates it will hold 300 yards of "that" pound test mono: in this case 300/80 mono.
As noted, the reel is not designed for 200 pound lines.
