how much 40# test can a 332 hold ?
which reel cast better p332, s332 ?
150 yards maybe or #40
One thing to keep in mind is the newell 332 only has jig master size drag washers which are a bit undersized for 40lb line.
It will hold about 270yds of 40lb mono, but really more of a 20-30lb reel.
Never been much of a fan of the S series, I prefer the P and G series ( prefer the original P's because of the extra drag ) and a P series with the aluminum spool switched out to a graphite spool even better.
The way Newells are rated are by their model names,
-320 yds of mono
With 40 you'll get about 240 yds of line or so, it'll do just fine, 30 is prime though.
It'll hold roughly 240 yds of 40#. Newells are rated in terms of Berkley tournament line which is smaller in diameter than regular mono. The 332, nominally rated at 320 yds of 30# will hold about 290 yds of 30# mono like Big Game. So knock off about 10% of their ratings and you're in the zone.
Both reels being equivalently tuned, the S332 will probably out cast the P332 due to having a graphite spool rather than an aluminum spool. If your comparing an original P to a current S, the P332 is a better made reel.
Separate names with a comma.
