dunno...  to me, that rod SCREAMS 5-10# BRAID & Shakes spool & line-lay just ain't braid-worthy

I contemplated using braid and spoke with Mo about it, but after thinking it over, I think I'll stick with 4 lb. mono.
The spool is large enough that capacity shouldn't be a problem.

not a capacity issue... 
IMO, good vintage Mod-Slow glass is perfect for zero-stretch & tough to find w/ braid-worthy guides

I think it looks perfect and it's not often that your reel color matches the reel seats.

A definite contender for best looking vintage UL combo.

I fished one with a baby gold Diawa spinner for ears as a kid. Spooled with 6-8# mono. I caught turd bass, croaker, surf perch, bonita (What a ride!) and a few White Sea Bass on it that I remember.
Nothing from the California Tcle Compny isn't great.

Sadly I never got to fish it.
Things have been tight and I've been selling some gear here and there. Made a decent profit on eBay.

totally understand, Im the same way I have a short list of goto reels (hopefully will never sold those) and a long list of spare/backup/saleable reels
everytime things get tight, that second list of reels become shorter

Nice!   I have a Saber 655H that had a cracked reel seat I'm working on.

Nice rods! I have a vintage 7' South Bend with a 450SS that looks very close.  I always enjoy using that set, very strong and flexible rod.
Be careful when you bring your boys with you, my son used it once and claimed it Smiley.

Best,
