Does anybody know the real world capacity of this reel with 30 lb backing? Lets say with a running line and a Rage or Scandi head. Thanks.

Hi, Leo. Same reel but a different line combination.  I have 200 yards of Rio 30 lb Dacron backing and a full DT 12F salmon line (which is 120 feet long and slightly thinner than a well-fed Python) on mine.  There is enough room left to add another 80 yards of 30 lb, which I measured by back-filling the lined spool. To quote the well-known Lesser American Orange Badger, it's "yuge".  Regards, Graham.
