Looks like a solid reel....how about 60# powerpro backing and then whatever fluoro you desire on top?  i used 40 pound fluoro and got one monster to the yak.
Calling fishing a hobby is like calling brain surgery a job.

Hey I got the exact one a few months ago.  Nice reel.  I squeezed 500 yds. of #65 powerpro on it.  Had a couple nice fish on it and drag seems pretty nice.

Do they sell the 65 power pro in 500yds spools, ive only seen the 300 yds in 65 and the 80 in 500yds out here. I usually go with the green Power Pro.

Hard to find in stores.  I think I had to get it online.  Cabela's or something.  I got the green too.

If you don't have to have it "TODAY", try look at eBay.

I don't know what models #'s there are, but I know Sport's Authority carries a lot of them in their combo packs CHEAP! That's where I got my Penn jigmaster and rod for only $89.99 I would have bought the Okuma ones, but I heard they are too hard to find parts for :)

Yeah the 20L holds enough line for me and it is not too big.  Pretty nice.

Hey guys, really sorry.  I have the 15L not the 20L.  Sorry about that. Major brain fart.  Its a little bit smaller than the 20L.
