leadcore reels


Recommended Posts

I would suggest 250 yards of 30# power pro with a 10ft piece of Mono to the leadcore, the Mono has a lot of stretch, and the line diameter for the mono precludes maximum length for the backer. If you don't like Power pro any 30# braid works well. use a willis knot to attach the mono to the core, and a double uni knot to attach the mono to the power pro. gives you a 10' piece of mono to attach a board and you get plenty of backer to get boards away from the boat.

Mine are on 700's with 65 lb backing and it's usually one of my outside boards (10 color). Not even close to running out of backing even with a big screamer on it. Gear ratios are both 4.2:1 so there's no gain there, the 800 is just a wider spool, not bigger diameter so there's no gain on an 800 from a reel torque or speed perspective. That being said- we run coppers on either Convector 55's and Tekota 800's
