Reel Question

Discussion in 'Muskie & Pike Discussions' started by socdad, Nov 7, 2007.

  1. Would an Abu Garcia C4 (4600 / line capacity of 10/170) work casting for Muskie? Concerned not sufficient line capacity.

    I normally use power pro 65 lb

    sure would. i use a lefty 4600 for a couple yrs now.
     

  3. thanks for the info ... If you use a "super braid" how many yds of backing to do use?
     
  4. If you're concerned about capacity, tape your braid to the spool.

    i use 65 power pro also. i fill half the spool with 20-30 mono. you dont need a whole lot of line for casting.
     
  6. Thanks for the info ... got arthritis in my hands & smaller reel will be a bit easier to hang on to.
