I got 2 spools for my Sci Angler System II 8/9. Both have 250 yds. of 30lb backing (Hi Bob!). I might have put on less if I had not started into Albies last year. So if you're going to go for Albies or Bonito, you need mucho: especially from shore where you have no option to move the boat if you get spooled. One or some of us will probably crack the 5 lb Albie barrier this year and get into the next bigger class...say 8-12lb. I can hear it now ....ZZZZz z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z.
