  1. Hey yall I had some questions about backing a spool with mono before braided line. I am going to spool my 5000 penn battle 3 with 20lb braid. It says that the braid capacity for 20lb is 420 yards. I understand that usually it is okay for the amount of braid to be much less than the maximum since it is almost impossible to spool it so tightly that it can take everything. Do yall think 300yards should be enough for the penn battle 5000? And would I have to back it up with mono before?? Or should I just go with the 500 yards of braided line? I also have some leftover braid on the spool and was thinking about doing a uni-uni knot with the new 300 yards of braid just in case I would run short without it.
  2. How do I figure the right size Mono to use as backing on spinning reels. Should it be based on diameter so the Mono and braid match or are close? Or should it be based on line test rating? Or something else? The way I fish from the beach and back bays, I never expect to get past the braid to my backing, so instead of line test rating, diameter would seem to make mote sense so the braid is less likely to get buried in tbe mono should I ever even get close to that. Anyway, looking for some guidance here. Thanks.
