I have been using a Penn 750 SS for tog with 40# mono. A fisherman next to me last time I was out, talked me into using 60# braid. Would this reel handle the braid, I fish tog at inlets and jetties. I wouldn't be casting to far. His reel did look smaller than mine, more like a 4000 series or a 5000 series. Thank you .
If you are currently using 40# mono you should be fine with the braid. Use some electrical tape or mono backing to keep the braid from slipping on the spool.
Here's a question, do you fish snafu rigs or jigs? If you fish snafu bottom rigs the heavy braid is the way to go. I use 65#braid with 80# Fluoro snafu rig on a seigler sg/ shimano heavy teramar wreck fishing. I'll step it down to a 50# rig in the bay. If you use jigs you want lighter braid. I use 20# with a 30# fluoro leader with 1 to 2 oz tog jig with a 4500 spinfisher setup in the bay and from shore also. The jigs don't work well with heavy braid because of the braid drags in the current.
Thanks Benji, I use a single hook rig with a 2 to 4 oz dipdsey sinker I get at the tackle store. I'll only be fishing from shore on the rocks or at a bulkhead. I've never fished tog with a jig. Guy said most guys at the inlet use 60# to 80# braid, But to stick with 60# or even 65#.
