    Default Lamson Guru 3

    Anyone here have a guru 3 spooled with GSP backing? If so how much of what lb test fits? Website says 150 yds of 20# Dacron.

    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.
