Default 130 Line capacity

I received a 130 Intl in the shop for minor repair and to respool. Repair is completed. Customer wants to respool with 200# braid ( probably JB or Momoi Hollow core) with a topshot of 200 yards of 130 mono. So, my question is, how much 200# hollow core will this reel hold. I know it's going to be a lot!!

Around 800-900yards of hollow core with room left over for a 200 yard topshot. Depending on what brand line you use

I do it by math formula. (Rated Capacity X .85)-(Topshot X 3)

Where Rated Capacity is 3085 and Topshot is 200=

(3085 X .85)= 2622
-(200 X 3)= 600

= 2022 yds. of 200# Braid and 200 yds. of 130# Topshot for a total of 2222 yds.

Thatís what I thought about your 800 yards on a Penn 130.

I donít have anything to say about this, I just quoted it so you donít delete it tomorrow when you sober up.

He can think anything he wants, don’t know why he feels the need to take a swipe at me though. Added him to the list for that.

Penn 130 and it’s predecessor the 16/0 have always been designed to hold 1,000 yards of 130# mono. Chock full it should hold 2000 yards of braid and 300 yards of mono but that doesn’t leave much headspace.

There is an app that calculates it. Top Shot Calculator. 1370 yards of backing or so.

I wasnít attacking you. Just found it funny.

Iíve spooled more 130ís in the past year than most will in their life at the tackle shop I worked at. A penn international 130 will not hold any whereís near 2000 yards of 200 pound hollow core with a 200 yard topshot

Wasnít aware of that app. I just tried it against a Penn 70 I did two weeks ago and the braid backing the app calculated was more than 20% less than actual.

Penn's website say's 3085 yards of 200lb braid on a 130 vis, that is just straight braid of course. I know some of the older Penn's hold a little less then the newer models. But WOW, that is a ton of line.

I ordered two 2500 yard spools of 200# hollow core to use a backing on two Tiagra 130s that I recently purchased. I'm not sure I will need all of it but I expect each reel to hold 2000 - 2200 yards of the backing with room for a 200 yard top shot.

What pound topshot are you planning on using and what brand?

If you use a short 10 yard topshot you will be able to get around 1700 yards of hollow core on a tiagra.

I assume your gonna use 130 momoi diamond or 175 jinkai for topshot. With a 200 yard topshot of one of these lines you will get around 900 yards of 200# backing. This will leave you enough gap for the reel to still be fishable.

Shimano says a Tiagra 80W (smaller than a 130) can hold 1920yd of 200lb Power Pro.

Penn says a International 130 will hold 3085yd of 200lb braid or 1005yd of 130lb mono.

Not to be a dick but have you ever spooled a big game reel before? you might get close to 3k yards of straight 200lb braid if you fill the reel to the very top so it can barely spin and is not fishable.

If you want a 200 yard topshot like the OP stated. Then you will only be able to fit around 900 yards of 200lb braid and still have enough room left over for the 200 yard topshot. You cant fill your spool all the way to the top of the bar that goes across the spool.

Here's what BALLPARK I came up with

Assumptions:
Reel Capacity per PENN site for 130VIS
* I assume Momoi Hi-Catch Mono and Momoi Diamond G3 Hollow Core *
- 1005yds of 130lb Hi-Catch mono (1.2mm OD)
OR
- 3085yds of 200lb G3 Hollow Core (.80mm OD)

Top Shot of 130lb Mono x 200yds

Backing of 200lb Hollow Core = Approx 1200yds

Basil. Calling Basil. Cleanup in aisle 3.

My line calculator states 800 yards of 130# mono with a diameter of 1.2mm will equal 2,047 yards of 200# JBHC with a diameter of 0.75mm. Deciding how much less braid to leave room on the spool will be a personal decision to discuss with the reel owner.

Not to beat a dead horse in the ground, but 32Regulator is on the money.

Trust me. I've spooled 6 130's just this week. Who knows how many this year?????

1000 +/- yards of 200# Hollow will leave just enough room for a 200 yard 130# top-shot with a little wind-on room as well.

Bank on it.

The following was published many years back by SALTWATER SPORTSMAN. I cant vouch for 100% accuracy but it's the best, and most specific, calculator I've seen. Clearly, its imperfect based upon the precision under tension when spooling. I use it for BALLPARK assumptionns and typically err with a little less.
Saltwater Sportsman Article
QUOTE
Many bottom-bumping anglers like to use superbraid lines to help them catch fish. Rather than spend up to $50 to spool a reel, top-shot with mono backing. Here's how to calculate the amount of mono to use. The first information you will need is the reel's line capacity.
For this example, I used the Penn 113H with 50-pound PowerPro and 30-pound Ande mono.
Penn lists the capacity of the 113H at 435 meters of .55-millimeter-diameter line. I like to convert all metric figures to English (see "Conversion Table"), so the reel holds 475 yards of 30-pound mono. You will also need to know the diameter of the lines. PowerPro's 50-pound-test line is .014 inches in diameter. Finally, Ande 30-pound monofilament is .022 inches in diameter.
To find the total capacity factor of the reel, multiply how many yards the spool can hold (476) by the diameter of the line, in inches (.022). 476 5 .022 = 10.5 yard-inches.
Use the same formula above to find the braid capacity factor. Only in this instance multiply the number of yards of 50-pound PowerPro that you want (150) by its diameter in inches (.014). 150 5 .014 = 2.1 yard-inches.
The total capacity factor (10.5) minus the braid capacity factor (2.1) gives us the remaining capacity factor: 8.4. Now, to figure out how many yards of mono backing you'll need to finish the job, divide the remaining capacity factor (8.4) by the diameter, in inches, of 30-pound Ande mono (.022-inch). 8.4/.022 = 382 yards—the amount of mono needed as backing.
— Adam Wilner

Conversion Table
1 mm = .0393701 inch
1 meter = 1.0936133 yard
1 yard = 3 feet
435 meters = 476 yards
.55 mm = .022 inch
50-pound PowerPro = .014-inch diameter
Ande Premium Monofilament 30-pound. = .022-inch diameter
