Re: Backing rule of thumb?

Probably play with the numbers a bit once I know the spool length of the expensive stuff, right on.

Re: Backing rule of thumb?

Ok cool. So, the trend with baitcast spools (at least the ones I own) seems to be about 90yds of .36mm. I could do 20yds of that diameter mono and 65yds of similar size flouro.

I would say something in the megabass family. I have a evo 68 xti f5.5 it's oh so sweet for 1/2oz jerkbaits.
