I use an Abu 6500 w/20lb Power Pro. My wife likes the Abu 5500 w/20lb Power Pro. The line test is all about setting the drag pressure with a scale so that it doesn't break. As far as line capacity; I wouldn't use a 5500 unless you have a boat to chase the fish down. I had to pull anchor and do that with one of my wife's bull reds. He nearly spooled her with the current. I set my drag with 20 lb test between 8 and 10 lbs. Makes it more fun! I just use the stiffer rods rated for about 25lb test, but I've had a guy fish with me that caught some big ones with an All Star flimsy popping cork rod with no problem. It seemed like it bent in two but didn't break though.
