Yeah the real seat is the reson i didnt get the CP and went with the regular OM heaver...i got close to 450-500 yards of 20# line on the reel...i bought a spool of 25# and 30# to experiment with durring the summer!

it is big enough but you can still easily get spooled by a big shark that runs straight out. you can fill half the spool with 50 lb. braid like power pro and mono on the last half to cast with. you'll have like 600 yds or more. you can put all braid on there for the extra capacity but I hate casting with braid.

casting with braid is a love hate relationship, it is either dead on awesome or blow up after blow up. but yes you should do just fine with the toothy ones.
