    You can put any size you want on it. The larger the size the less line you can spool. What size cats are you gunnin for.

    I put 30# on the 6500C4s that are on my 10' surf rods. Obviously, you cant hold as much line, and you cannot cast as far as you would with a lighter line. I use 20# on my 6500c3s that are on my 7' 'boat' rods.

    20# casts well and has done well for me. If you need more strenght than that, I'd go with a braid. More strength and capacity. My choice would be a 50 or 65 lb braid.
