    I am interested in buying a penn senator reel. If i purchase a reel that can capacitate 30 pound test line can i put fifty pound test line on it. I do not trust anything under 50 pound test line any more since i am in search of big cats. The penn reels that hold maintain 50 pound test line are too big and costly. Would i be safe with putting on 50 lb test line on a penn reel that has the capacity to hold 30 lb test line.

    Yes you can put 50 on it but, and in the world of catfishing it don't matter, it will cut the amount of line from appx 550 yards of 30 to about 460 of 50.
