What braid is the thinnest. I just got a 870N and would like to get at least 300 yds of either 50,55,60,65 lb braid on there. What are you guys using? thanks!

What braid is the thinnest. I just got a 870N and would like to get at least 300 yds of either 50,55,60,65 lb braid on there. What are you guys using? thanks! 50# braid should be the thinnest. Since you have an Accurate Reel then I check out the handy line calculator they have on the website: Accurate Reels Spectra Diameter (inches) 50# 0.014 65# 0.016 80# 0.017 Mono Diameter (inches) 12# 0.014 15# 0.015 20# 0.018 I did the calculations for you and here are the results: Accurate B-870N Spectra capacity: 617 yards of 50# 473 yards of 65# 419 yards of 80# So it seems 65# will give you want you want and leave some room for a short topshot or leader. P.S. Which braid line are you considering? I just got the Daiwa Saltiga PE-6 (80#) braid today and its very nice. Its limp like Jerry Brown and Izoline, but its has depth markers on it, which is handy for know how much line you let out. I hope that answered you question. Ty

Ty The calculator is not correct. d-a That did cross my mind sicne those number did not work out for my Daiwa reel. Ty

I don't know about their calculator; but, Accurate's site claims the B2-8780N holds 425 yd of 50 # spectra. See Accurate Reels From there I assume lb-test * length is a constant and divide by other line test wts to get roughly 325 yd of 65# spectra or 250 yd of 80# spectra.
