Not sure how much 130# braid a 12/0 will hold. Deaver told me it took 5000yds of 80# Power Pro to fill up his 12/0. He also said it was the dumbest thing he ever did(some will argue that one).gunrunnerbob said:how much does anyone know will a 12/0 penn hold of 130braided[magibraided]i believe i put 1200 0n 9/0/.... hung a 7/8 ft bull and he took off with a few hundred yards of power pro

That's pretty funny dude, considering that I put the line on myself...justletmein said:I just had a 9/0 spooled at Academy and it held 725/50. I think the 12/0 is rated for 800/80. JD I cannot imagine 800/60 + topshot on a 9/0, think you got ripped because they were charging your per yard.
Just an attempt at humor man, no hard feelings. That's why I added the after the joke. I still can't imagine such a big difference between the chrome spool and aluminum spool, but apparently that's the case.JD761 said:That's pretty funny dude, considering that I put the line on myself...
Had a 950yd spool of BG 60#, if you moved what was left of the line a little, you could see the spool underneath...
Only thing I can think of that you might be talking about, is when I compared the 6/0W(114HLW) to a 9/0(115L). Skipjack and a few others just had a good discission with me on EC about that.obsessed said:GD, didn't you do some kind of "capacity" project on some reels not too long ago, if you wouldn't mind...could you post it again, would like to take a look over it again...
