Reel Line Capacity
« on: February 06, 2019, 04:20:06 PM »

Is there a way to calculate how much line a reel will hold if the specs don't have it listed. My wife has a reel that will hold 90/4. I would like to know how much 6# test it will hold. 
Trilene XL 4# dia is .20mm and 6# dia is .22mm

Really, the easiest way would be to spool it and see how much it holds, then write it down for future reference.

OR, do some googling and find a reel of similar size with the same 4# line capacity and just use that as a guideline.

Here's the specs for a Mitchell Avoslab. It lists the 4# mono capacity at 100 yards, so I'd wager the 6# capacity is pretty close too.

Anytime.  I had another site that I used to use, but it has been so long ago that, that one is now defunct.

Some lines aren't exactly the thickness they say they are for the whole spool and other variances, you may find calculations to be a few feet off.

I also found that some reels are a little off in their guesstimates of what they hold.
