Does PP hollow ace or solid fit more line? Looking to fill up a Saltiga 60, would really like to get 600yds of 100 or close to.

Hollow ace is pretty chunky, I've been using diamond gen 3 for a few years now with great success, but I've never directly compared how much a reel holds compared to solid.

If you're going to splice everything (instead of knots) you can probably drop down to 80lb. I use 40lb and when spliced it breaks at just over 70lbs in my tests.
