penn 340gt2 reel for copper setup

The 340 and 345 have a 3.3:1 gear ratio. This size of reel is new to me. Im just looking for a reel that I can pack on alot of copper. I was thinking 1 of these penns or a Okuma Cv55L. Im hoping I can get at least 400 ft of blood run 45lb copper on one of these reels.

I have the Okuma CV 55 and the Penn 345GT2 and both will pack on 300' of 45# copper with plenty of backing to get the job done. Haven't tried anything longer than 300' but I think the CV55 would handle another 100 to 150 if you went to less backer maybe only 150 yards of 30# Power pro.

I plan on spooling up at least 1 copper rod this year and will be using one of the Okuma Clarions. I like the retrieve on those. I am thinking about getting Tuna Tom to upgrade a few of my 45's to get a better retrieve on my fullcores too. We'll have to see about the budget.
