    Im about to spool up my OJ 4000 with 80lb suffix metered braid which is a 330yd spool, how much 80lb braid backing is needed to get my "filled" up? With room for a very short topshot?

    Also what should I back it with?

    Thaks for the help

    330 yrds of suffix 80 is all shes gonna hold. Thats whats on mine. AlsoI don't like over filling the conv. jigging reels for ease of laying the line.
