    Anyone know how much of 50 or even 65lb braid a 870N will hold? Going to use this as a light jigging setup. Is it comparable to a Blue Heaven L50?

    How large of a tuna would you fish this with?

    I have one that I use with a 300g OTI for blackfin jigging. Holds about 200yds +/- on the braid, is a real blast to play with when the yft action is slow or non-existant. BTW I use 80# boat braid on mine.....

    250yds of 65lb or 300yds of 50lb suffix, the 870N and 270 have the same capacity
