Love my senator reels. I have like 4 6/0 and half dozen 4/0s and they are solid. Rick's is the only place to go for repairs. Nothing but good things said about him.

I ordered 1097 yd roll of 120lb braid from amazon for like 58 bucks. I plan to add that plus like 10ft of flourocarbon. It's hold like 925 yds of 100lb braid... so.. 120.. eh... should be plenty of room.

Not an expert... but seems it would work.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Rick is reel (get it?) popular in Florida.
He has rebuilt a Triumph TR3 thread on THT.
Goes by triumphrick.

I like the Momoi diamond line in blue.
