    hey guys,

    fishing in the north sea of cortez here, gonzaga bay area and San Felipe.
    I recently got a used gold trini 16 and upgrade the drags for some carbontex and also installed a new dog and spring from the triniDC, so, according from some guys the reel now has guts for 22-25# of drag, more than enough for stopping a mad cabrilla or grouper in the deep.

    Im debating between spooling it with 200yds of JB 80# solid spectra or 333yds (300mts) of 60# toro tamer solid braid (already have those two lines with me), boths with a short 5ft 60# mono leader.

    this reel will be paired on a trevala rod 6.6 MH for jigging and casting irons, my yo-yo and trolling reel is a fathom 40, dont need anything bigger in this area.

    so, will I be better with extra capacity 60# braid or the strength and abrasion resistance of 80# JB?

    so.. after so many answers I got lost, can we try it again ?

    what line do you guys normally use or recomend on the trini 16 (gold model)?
    200 yrds of solid 80# braid
    300 yds of solid 65# braid
    500 yds of solid 50# braid

    in all cases just short 60# mono leader, 60# only because the abrassion resistance normally fishing and jigging on rocky bottoms of Baja midriff area (gonzaga bay)

    300yds of 65# and a beefier rod than a Trevala 66mh.

    Well I actually sold the trevala MH and got me a 5.8' XXH trevala

    Like 3x better cuz its shorter, stronger and lot more manejable in a panga boat.
