The 525 is one of my favorites for fshing outside the bar. I normally fish with 16lb momoi/ 15lb big game and like the results. Capacity is good 300 plus yards. Switching to a braid will increase the capacity greatly, but you will have to add more brake, either mags or friction so the spool does not run as fast when you cast. Any fluff with the braid will cause an impressive backlash.
