I use a standard WF9F bonefish taper on my Big Game 3N. I have 20 pound test Micron backing on mine. I never paid attention to the line winder scale, but I know that I have between 225 and 250 yards.

Thanks, Dennis. That's helpful.

Checked the lines this morning and I see where I might have a tighter fit than you on my 3N because I plan on using a Steelhead taper on the reel. The RIO Steelhead taper is 110 ft. vs. 100 feet for the Outbound Shorts line. The head weight is also 515 vs. 375. I have that line on one of my spools for the 3N in an 8 wt. and it is a heck of a long thicker head... that could hurt me.
