It is an older reel in "excellent" condition. I almost bought one of the Okuma Classic Pro Levelwinds from Catfish Connection, but for about the same price I got something I really wanted -- after learning about them here. I would appreciate suggestions on what line to use. I have Trilene Big Game 25lb on my Penn spinning reel, and I plan to put Power Pro 65lb on my Ambassadeurs. I figure I'll probably use PP with some backing, or just spool up with some monofilament. If I use PP with backing, how much PP and how much backing do y'all think I should use? Would the Trilene Big Game be good backing? If I spool up with Big Game, what would be the ideal weight of line to use with this reel and, say, about a 10' Berkeley Glowstik? Thanks for your help.
