Default Diawa Sealine 27

Does anyone know how many yards of #18 lb Leadcore one will hold? I would like to not go bigger than a 27. But I am also afraid not to have some backing behind the Leadcore!! I learned that lesson up at Pathfinder about 20 years ago That was a big brown. I can just imagine what a big Wiper could do! I had a really big carp spool me and blow up my Diawa Sealine up at Glendo also. Kooser was with me that day about 10 years ago.

Have you thought about 'backing' your lead core with some type of other line?
Those reels, if memory serves me, will hold @ 275 yds of 12lb mono...
You should still be able to get around 10-12 colors on it with room to spare...
AND, it would be a HELL of a lot lighter to work with..

That is what I did with my old Sealine 47 20 years ago. I put a 100 yards of Dacron on it before I spooled on the leadcore. Just not sure how much backing to spool onto the 27 before I put on Leadcore? I don't need ten colors either!

Just put on enough backing to cover the spool.

At least you can turn the boat around and catch up if you have to.

Thats an easy word problem...hopefully you are doing more than one reel...put the leadcore on one reel first and fill with backing and then reel it onto your extra blank reel since you really should have more than one...pay attention to where your backing ends as you reel to the second reel...super lines are thinner and you can put more lead core on as a result...are you going to use lead core with boards?...I believe more than 3 or 4 colors will sink a board...think I read that somewhere once...if you are going to use lead core and boards some superlines are pretty slick and boards may have issues staying firmly attached...so you may want two sets of lead core rods...one set with a bunch of colors in case of snags and losing some lead core with a super line as backing so you can fit more colors on...and one set with 3 or 4 colors tied to mono so clips stay snug and you can troll...

I am going to carry six trolling rods. Two leadcore, four with mono for boards and flatline trolling. If I need extra weight I will use snap weights in conjunction with the boards.

I spool my 17s with a little backing and 10 colors of 14 lb leadcore and 40 feet of leader. I have never been spooled by a big wiper or a 35 lb carp

I have a 17 already spooled with mono. I use it to flat line troll.

You can get 7 or 8 colors of 18lb leadcore on the 27, with just enough backing to cover the spool. The 47 size is a much better option. If you want to get down quickly, 18 lb is the way to go. Thinnest diameter to weight ratio.
