Line Capacity Daiwa Sealine 50sh
« on: June 10, 2016, 06:12:10 pm »
Hi Guys

The reel specs say that you get 500m of .50mm on the reel, which have I found in most cases is not so in reality!

What meterage are you guys getting on the reel?

I wanting to spool the reel with 180m / 200m of .55mm and trying to work how much 50lbs braid backing I can put on.

Thanks

If you put 300m of 50lb braid on as backing, you should get easily 200m of 0.55 topshot.
The spool of the Sealine is not that much different in size to a Saltist, perhaps a little smaller in capacity. On our Saltists, we put 400-450m of 50lb Braid, with 150-200m of 0.5 topshot

You chasing Garrick with this setup?

Now is not a good time to go fishing... said nobody... EVER!!

I spoiled my sl50 with .45 double x and got 600m on the dot...no backing...just a question..why would you go as heavy as .55 on an sl50?
I'm not addicted to fishing,i can quit anytime my wife makes me.

Thanks Guys


Managed to spool 600m of Gaitor braid and 200m of 0.55mm Giant Abrasion.


I had 18kg Maxima topshot and old kingfisher braid backing on the reel for Yellowtail but got cleaned up by a big shark about 2 weeks ago livebait fishing in the Transkei.  In respooling I wanted to give myself some chance if I hooked a big shark again, which was this past weekend with a big Johnny peeling off 500/600m when the steel trace was shredded from it jumping.

Hi gents,

Sorry to necro post, but could you please advise this newby?

I am a vaalie who does rock & surf fishing once a year mainly for edibles. I have a Kingfisher poseidon 13ft Deep blue medium rod with a daiwa sl50sh. The reel needs new line

My questions:

Can I spool the reel with just monofilament? What diameter would you suggest? 0.40mm?

What are the pros on spooling with braid first then "topshot"? Because the braid is thinner you can get more line on the spool? Sorry my Google Fu is not working for this topic.

Thanks folks for the advice.

Correct. The braid helps with line capacity should you hook a big guy, however since you mentioned you mainly fish for edibles, I would just spool it with. 0.45mm mono straight
Fishing all day, everyday is still not enough fishing
