    How much 80lb Power Pro braid line will a Shimano TLD 20, TLD 20A two speed reel hold?

    i just spooled a 500yd 1500ft box onto my new TLD, photo of space for topshot leader -- seeing is believing.

    50/820,65/745,80/660 assuming the line is spooled on tightly like it is supposed to be.

    Just had Squidco spool 465 yards of 65lb Power Pro Spectra onto my Saltist BG 40H -- see my photo how that looks -- they also spooled 650 yards of the same line onto a 50H reel.

    I assume they wrapped it tight like it is supposed to be...

    How much Spectra Power Pro braid will a Saltist Daiwa fishing reel hold?

    I just spooled 500yds of 80# Power Pro MaxCuatro on a Shimano Tyrnos 16II. Had space for about 80 feet of 60# Big Game mono.

    Squidco spooled 350 yards of 50lb J BRAID Spectra onto my DAIWA SeaLine SL30SH -- see my photo how that looks -- this is a bit under filled (not to the brim).

    Squidco just spooled my Shimano TLD30II 2-speed with Tiburon Magnum 30 frame conversion with 520 yards of 120 lb Daiwa J-Braid solid core spectra fishing line.

    How much spectra braided line will a Shimano TLD 30 30A two-speed reel hold?
    See answer above.

    See photo: Spool not completely filled, I plan to attach an 80lb short fluorocarbon leader (not a topshot) and fish it for big bluefin tuna offshore in San Diego waters.

    I chose 120lb (they were out of 130lb) for about 550 yards of line capacity to fill up the spool.

    Just a brag pic - I got out off San Clemente Island for a epic bluefin bite aboard the Aztec out of Seaforth Sportfishing just a couple days prior to full moon. Great boat, great crew... Blue-fin70lbs.jpg 60-70lbTRIP.jpg

    HOW MUCH J Braid Spectra will Avet HX 5/2 Raptor Hold?

    New today from Squidco, they said they put about 500 yards of 100lbs JBraid on it, but I wasn't there to witness the deed ...

    PS: Tackledirect-com line charts note the HX Raptor holds 600 yards 100lb spectra (with a whopping 50 lb max drag) ... next time I will be there when line is installed so I can insure poundage and length installed

    The Avet website says the HX Raptor holds 500 yards of 80 lb braid. I just looked on the website.

    I’ll take your word on Avet’s website - Guess all spectra (and line winders) are not equal in the real world

    But if I’m reading tackledirect above chart correct, they say hx raptor holds 600 yards of 100 pound braid

    For me - that’s why the only useful number here is what the line installer tells me he put on my reel, and I missed his number on this install, too bad
