I said do you have any power pro 80 they said yes i said fill it up they did 608 yards of power pro 80 for free that much line is worth more than the reel i bought lol im goin back next week and buy another lol. and im gonna take 450 yards off it and spool 3 other reels I have with it.

    The Power Pro is the really good deal. Not bad on the 209, they usually go for a nickle under $60.

    well its supposed to hold 320 yards of 20 lb mono but the power pro 80 is about the size of 17# mono and they over filled it a little it held it i looked right at the counter when it was done 608 yards

    Great deal!!
    You should check with the same guy and see how much they charge to fill empty spools/reels that you bring in.They might charge a flat rate.
