I think a important piece of information missing in most of the posts is how many pounds of tension is being used when installing the line...... the amount of line can vary quite a bit depending on how much tension is used.....

Nice to see this is still going strong and helping people.

Just respooled my MAK16 SEA- 750 yards of 100# Max Cuatro marked every 100' to 400'.

Awesome thread, great to hear actual results instead of weather or not to believe what is on the box.

I just got a used Avet HX and was going to put 80# or 100# PP on it, has anyone ever spooled an HX with 80 or 100# braid?...and how many yards?
