A Penn 309 for surf casting? Just curious how it would work. Thanks for the help.
Nope, not at all, already been baffled by all the ad info I've read ... j/kshrky2413 said:Oh yeah Pelican,
...... Hope I am not confusing you. Later.
Sharky, I/m going by what I have put on my reels, not what Penn puts in their advertisements. A 1/4# spool of 30# big game (440yds) is about what it takes to fill up a Jigmaster 500L/505L, a GS555 or a 309. It takes nearly all of two 1/4# spools to fill up a regular bronze spool 4/0. And yes A bronze spool 4/0 will hold over 700 yds(probably closer to 800 yds) of 30#, if the markings on 1/4# spools of Big Game are accurate. Since I have never filled a 113L or a 113 HLW, I won't guess on how much line they will hold.shrky2413 said:A standard 4/0 is advertised @ 475yds of 30lb mono. A 555GS is advertised at 600yds 20lb mono wich converts to 393yds 30lb mono. the 309 holds 350yds 30lb and a 500L jigmaster hold 275yds 30lb. These are the advertised specs.
393 x 2 = 786yds
have you ever had any problem with the line getting down around the spool spindle? i never fill mine over the spool edge.gundoctor said:BTW: I fill a reel until the line is almost dragging on the cross bars.
