Quick question, Ive seen posts about the size of a reel or how much line one holds. I have 2 6500 which hold about 175 yds of 20lbs line I think well something like this Im using 7ft poles and not getting any real distance casting out of them. Im just starting out with the baitcasters this year what I would like to know is what would be a better reel I honestly cant see spooling them all the way to the end with a cast so it should be enough line right. The main reason Im asking is I seen a post on small reels as far as Mono/Braid and person said that 6500s are small. Not that I dont want some bigger reels but I havnt caught anything big with these yet have any of you actually been spooled by a fish with that much line?
