backing capacity for Redington AS 11/12

Does anyone know how much backing(30lbs) the Redington AS 11/12 will hold with a spey line?

A spey line is such an open term but so you have someplace to start, I have 175 yds of 30 pound dacron on my 11/12 and a full 8/9 Accelerator. As I believe Dana mentioned on another thread, if you find yourself short of space, chop off a little of the running line. Most of us never need all of that running line anyway. Usually 30-40' is all most of us can shoot.

Hope this helps.
