    Thanks Basil for the info.
    It is interesting that you can get more line with 100 lbs than 80 lbs JB Hollow.
    I'll suggest my customers to go with 100 lbs than 80 lbs as 100 lbs has more line capacity and is cheaper.
    I can fill 400 yards of JB 60 lbs on Stella 20000SW with some room for topshot.

    Basil,

    What would you reccomend spooling a pe8 with, the 100lb indicator?

    Thanks,

    so the PE6 gets 350 yds of #80? or is it #60?
    since PE7 gets only 325yds of # 80.

    Basil, I notice you list the PE 8 as holding 400 yards of 80LB. I was easily able to fit 450 yards of 80LB on my PE 8 with plenty of room for 100LB topshot, for whatever its worth.

    I guess PE7 has less capacity due to narrow spool.

    The PE 7 is a very narrow reel, comparable to say an Accurate 600NN. I wouldn't be surprised if the PE 6 holds the same/slightly more line because it has the same width of a PE 8, just not as tall.

    PE7 get over 400 yards of #100 hallow with enough room for topshot.
    Definitely #100 hallow is thinner than #80 hollow. There is no reason to go for #80 instead of #10 exept it is easier to splice as it is cheaper.

    So what should i put on my reel (PE8), the 100lb right as i will get more line capacity?

    And your saying that the 80 is easier to splice than the 100? Why would that be?

    Thanks,
    JK

    Yes, I suggest 100 lbs instead of 80 lbs.
    Ask Basil for the answer. :) I think it is because #80 is 16 stranded and #100 is 12 stranded.

    Yeah, 80LB Jerry Brown Hollow that I got from you. No problem putting 450 yards on it at all. I spooled the line on another reel first, jacked up the drag, and cranked it off that other reel onto the PE 8, when I was done I felt there was even room for a little more, say 475 yards, if I really wanted to push it, but 450 fit great.

    Sea Bear,
    We checked your PE reel and found nothing is wrong. You lock for cramp was too deep so that it touches the spool. We put some washers to prevent it.
    The reel sent out already.

    JfishKing and Mark saw splicing up close tonight and took careful note of what they learned. I'm looking forward to both of them hanging big fish as they have the right stuff (and the muscle) now! Good luck Justin and Mark.

    What's the best way to load JB hollow on to a JM PE4 reel at home without any fancy spooling equipment? I was thinking running the line through something like a phone book to put pressure on the line while winding it on the reel?? I recently got a 300m spool from Basil and need to do this.
