btw, 15# braid on a 220 XN newell is pretty extreme thin line Shocked Shocked

no wonder why you couldnt fill the spool with 250 yds, I having hard time dealing with 20# braid on my small lowprofile reels and few 2500 size spinning reels.

Hey, Alex,

It is pretty common around here now to use 15lb braid for shallower bottom fishing.  It is plenty strong for the available species, and the thinness allows lighter terminal tackle to get down and stay down by catching less current.  The people that use the tog (tautog) jigs use light braid and a heavier mono or fluoro top shot for abrasion against structure.  I think the closeness of the Tiburon spool to the frame will be good enough to keep it from eating line.  I'm definitely not very experienced with all of this, but it seems to make sense.

I've been using 20lb Fireline on my Squidder 146 for fluke (flounder) fishing from boats for a while and like it.

Cheers,
/Joe

I've been using 20lb J-braid on a narrow 220 Newell without any problems fishing 350-400'. 15Lb braid should be fine

Yes!   it could be my "everything" reel.  Maybe I'll buy a 2nd spool for 30lb braid.

My wife has already seen the hoard, and another box arriving at the house comes as no great surprise.  But I seriously need to get out of rods & reels and into fishing.  Roll Eyes  She appreciates the harvest and does not like me coming home empty handed.

haha, joking aside, I do like fishing because of the adventure, fresh air and all, but we really enjoy a nice fresh fillet of fish at the table so, I always go fishing with the goal to catch few fish to bring home.

Transfer the 15 lb to a another reel (a level wind works really good for this).

Get this:

I've used KastKing white braid up to 100 lbs.

The 20 lb KastKing will be backing. Bimini loops and cat's paw to connect. If you were really anal about it, do a 20 or 30 lb hollow core connector...

Also, IMHO, clamping the reel is overkill for a 15 lb setup...and I've never seen a 15 lb deckhand rod.
