A guesstimate that we used to use was that you could increase your capacity by using 50 pound GSP braid from 20 pound test Dacron by 2/3. The guesstimate would be 250 yards.

Since all braids are not created equal, the conversion is not very accurate. If you can get a 300 yard spool, you should be safe. If you could get your braid off a bulk spool, then you will not have issues.
