Slow jigging in 250y - 400y of water. Thicker line will scope. Loosing 400y of line won't spoil your day. 2000 size took 750y of slick 8 20lbs.

910 of 50?! What/how are you fishing for?
For hand crank deep dropping over here, we like to have reels that hold at least 700yds of 50lb braid. The more line that's on the spool when your down 500-1100ft, the more you can pick up per turn.

Damn. Sweet reel. I don't need the line capacity, so hate to pay for all that braid. Have to consider this going forward.
