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
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).
So either you're going to have to dig deep or get to know your banker to fill up a 12/0 with braid.
BTW: I agree with justletmein, 1000yds of 80# mono will do just as good as miles of 130# braid with a 12/0. That's all the drag is good for and 1000yds is about all the line you can take advantage of.
If you want to fish 130# line, get a 14/0 or 16/0. You'll also need some water skies or a fighting chair, but at least you'll have enough drag.
I think it was Old Salt that used to fish a 12/0 loaded with 800yds of 130# Power Pro, with a 400yd topshot of 130 mono. A PINS freight train spooled him one day back in 02 or 03.
