Copper and Diawa Sealines???

Recommended Posts

I have 4- Diawa Sealines 47h's that where given to me. I sent them to Tuna's and had the drags upgraded. I was planning on using them for different lengths of lead core. Can these reels handle short segments of Copper(ie. 75ft, 150ft.) I would be using 45#. And how much backing do u think I should put on these reels for the above lengths.:confused:

The Daiwa 47's are not going to hold to much for lead or copper, but you could probably get away with some shorter segments. If you haven't checked it out already, the reel fill calculator on this site is a good tool for determining how much backing to put on your reels.

No less than 600' of braid, and 750' is better. I would think if you use 30# braid you could get close to 100' of copper.

BTW, The power handles are well worth it for the 47's.

h47s will not hold more than 30 yards of copper ,and you might find the small spool dia.takes a long time to get your copper to get the memory it needs to be user frendly. I usualy have a" crash"before it takes the proper set.

You could probably fit 150ft of copper on there with braid backing, the real question is will it be fun to real in. At one point I was using Penn 209's for full cores with 30lb fireline backing, but when the end diameter of your spool is that small, it takes forever to reel a fish in. Not to mention, if he makes a run for the boat, good luck catching up.
