Default Allen Alpha Series line capacity

I am waiting for my Alpha series reel to show up and I'm wondering about the reel capacity. I looked on the site but I don't understand what it means. I got the 9/10 weight and it says 250/30. What is that referring too?

It means it will hold 250 yards of 30# dacron backing plus your fly line.
