About 150 yards of 80 or 100lb braid. Use one step higher example 60lb main use 80lb braid.

Didn't get into braided backin yet. But my fren caught a big hammerhead shark wit his slider nd penn 4/0 loaded wit 60lb line. Frickin shark kept takin line nd a few times I thought wuz goin get spooled. But Neva came close to spooling da spool, or at least not enuff fo panic. All my reels is straight ande mono, cpl smaller reels wit 40lb j-line. I used ande my whole life, tried other lines but always came back to ande.

You can also put about 150 yds of #80 and back it up with #60 which would give you just about 300 yds of line on your reel. On my Shimanos I run 100 yds #100 braid as backing ... and fill the reel up with #80.
