    I may be asking for too much... but it would also be very helpful to have the spool capacities for the new gossas sw.

    They are slightly larger than their Stella counterparts. For example, the Stella 14K: 350Y 60lb. Saragossa 14K: 400Y 60lb.

    Hi Basil,

    Have you spooled any of the new Saltiga Expedition 5500H yet?
    How do they compare to the 14k Stella's in capacity?

    Thank you!

    They are very close using 60lb hollow braid.

    The 6k capacity of pe4 is 210m
    While it is 251m of JB 40 lb hollow(new), although the JB listed thickness is 0.351mm from the factory and Paulus measured it at 0.341mm average, both are way more than the standard pe4 which is 0.33mm

    How come?

    So for a 14k,
    it will take 350yds of JBH 60lb or 300yds of JBH 100lb, only 50 yds difference?

    Dear Basil, First I would like to thank you for creating this reference thread and your continuous valuable inputs in it

    I remember that 400yards, but now I can see that the first post lists it as 350, that's why I wanted to confirm
    Would you kindly edit it to 400
    Are these numbers suitable for a casting reel or they are right to the lip?

    I have a non-Stella inquiry, any idea about the Saltiga expedition 5500 capacity from both 60 & 100 JB Hollow?

    Thanks in advance

    Will a 10k Stella take 220yds of JB Hollow 100lb with a decent space off the lip for casting?

    Yes it should. That spool takes 200 yards of 80lb 16-strand hollow, the 220 number is attainable with 12-strand line and a linewinder.

    Thanks Basil
    If you are spooling a 14k with Seaguar TL 50 lb, are we talking about 450yds approximately?
