Awesome, Chad!  How are you going to fish it? 

I think it will be a pretty versatile reel.  Catfish and stripers in freshwater, leaopard sharks in the surf, inshore stuff if I make it on a boat.

Nice job Chad,Bet the reel will cast well off the beach. Any idea how much 50# it will hold?

I'm not sure, but I'm thinking 275-300 yards of 50 lb. braid.

Cool Beans!  Maybe the Albies will show again.  That's a perfect reel

Your photos look fine to me Chad - it's good to see your master piece sitting on a rod, it looks great. I've spooled my mag 10 with 50 lb braid but I'm not sure how much it took - I think it was around 250 yds with a bit of room left & I will probably put a 30 lb mono top shot like you're thinking.

It can't be too difficult - a lot of people do it.

Thanks for all the compliments guys!
It was a fun build and I learned a lot.  Can't wait to spool it up and catch something with it!
