I don't want to confuse things since you already have the 70# braid, but on a 50W for high speed wahoo trolling, I'd use 130# braid with a 150 to 200 yard top shot of 100# mono. That would give you approximately 800 yards of total capacity. Rigging anything smaller than that is asking from trouble from a big wahoo.
