I use 65 lb power pro on my 3N with 9 wt RIO Tropical clouser on a home built TCR blank...put more and thinner backing so that you will have the effect of a larger spool diameter when the line is out and you are into the backing as an example only not actually tested...say after the line is out and thereafter in an 1/8 in spool depth with dacron you have 25 yards but with 50 or 65 braid you have 75 yards ...those line are stiff cored for use in the heat of FLA...
