I have 45 pound on both of those size convectors and they work great. If you want a 300 or longer go with the 55 so you can get on enough backer. I have my 250s on the 55s as well but you could probably get by with a 45.

Get 45# super copper. The 'super' copper is tinned (silver). It is less likely to birds nest because it comes off the reel smoother than regular copper. 45# is the most popular weight.

For a reel, think about stepping up to the Okuma Clarion. The finish is a little nicer than the Convector.....but the big advantage over the Convector, is it's 6:1 take up factor.

If you can spring for two set-ups, get a 300' and a 200'. I run run 30# or 50# braid for backing. If you get the 55 size reel, you can save some coin on backing by using a hi-vis 30# mono.
