Correct. The “H” model is a standard width 6/0. The “HLW” is a wide 6/0.

Good deal. Anyone have any input on what is the best surf setup on this reel as far as line goes?

It depends on what you are going to use it for. What is your target species?

My opinion, you're not going to cast with that reel. It's fine for yakking baits out.

Thats the million dollar question. I know when you put a line in the surf, you have the possibility of catching most anything. The conundrum has always been castability (unless like the previous poster mentioned: yakking baits out for shark) vs line capacity and weight.

The oldtimers here used to use the Penn 140M Squidder with metal spool as a general purpose go to reel. Great casting reel, holds about 300 yards of 30lb mono, and will generally handle bull reds, jackfish, sharks to 75 lbs, etc.

The Penn 350 Leveline, Penn Jigmaster and the Penn 200 Surfmaster we slightly bigger reels but still very castable.

For a bigger, heavier reel for larger sharks, etc, then the Penn 4/0 (somewhat able to cast but not very well) and the 6/0 and 9/0 would be good choices if you can put the bait out with a yak or other type of boat. You wont cast either of those reels.

I am sure there are newer reels out there but those have been my go to for beach and pier fishing for many years.
