A Mako 9550 (Large Spool) will hold 500 metres of 55# Daiwa Saltiga GSP backing, plus any kind of fly line system you would likely use for tuna.
Other GSP backings will likely take more space, but I am sure you can get at least 400 yds of anything that is rated at 50# or so.
The Mako 9500, and the 9550 have exactly the same line capacity, but the 9550 will give you a better retrieval rate.
Either one will handle what you would likely run into.
PS the 9550 probably has a bit more drag than the 9500. I can easily run my 9500 up against the stop all the time, and fish will still pull line off. The 9600 and 9700 are a different story though, as far as drag goes. They have enough for anything up to a Los Angeles class submarine.
