Judging by the pics the CT deep DIY "Long Cast" spool looks to be similar in depth to a Tatula CT SV spool so I would think it would hold useable amounts of #10 and #12 non braid.
Thanks for the help, also looking into the Zillion TWS spool that someone turned me on to. Would be interesting to have a shallow spool in a reel that big, at first I didn't believe it was for the 1516 until reading further. Not sure if it is BFS style though or deep, haven't looked it up in a while... Now if I can just settle on a BFS rod that will throw 1/16 heads with tiny minnow style plastics.
