With 100lbs Seaguar?
With 100lbs Trilene Prospec?
What do you guys recommend? Thanks!
I recently filled mine with 600 yards of 80# white maxcuatro at fisherman's landing. I couldn't believe it held that much line. The different between the 80# and 100# maxcuatro is .001 according to the company's website. Had I known that before I filled up the reel I would have gone with 100#.
Wow! How does the max cuatro feel? have you pulled and tested the strength compare to other spectra?
The green and yellow have killed a lot of fish over the years so I would assume this will perform just as well. While I have not had the opportunity to fish it yet, it should be fine. The diameter is significantly thinner even compared to the ProSpec which I was originally going to put on it. I ran both through my fingertips at fisherman's landing and the difference in circumference was obvious to me.
So many different variables, tension used when spooling, diameter, etc. My Fth40nld2 took 485 yds of 80lb threadlock, & it's put on pretty tight, still have room for a 50-75 " top shot. ed
is that the fth40ld
It's the FTH40nld2,
I have 400 yards of 80# J-Braid on my TRQ40NLD2 (which I believe has the same spool dimensions of the Fathom version) plus a 40 yard topshot of 50# mono for use in both heavy bait and yo-yo. It works excellently for what I target, which is big yellowtail and offshore tuna to around 100 pounds. If I expect bigger tuna than that I move to a bigger reel. But a strong reel of this size is going to be fine with 99% of the fish you are going to be encountering anywhere except Cow Town.
I got 550 yards of 80lb Daiwa boat braid on mine with room for a small top shot
I was able to put 500 yds of 80lbs pro spec with room to put probably 20 yds of topshot
