Initially you "should" load the reel with the GsP backing line at very high loading rate, like about 15+lb, and cross hatch it to stop layer slip, and the GsP should be glued to the reel arbor with Loctite 406 glue.
The drag washers should be carbontek, all else is a waste of time. Hayden reels have carbontek drag washers, well mine has plus it's been tested up around 30/40lb. Terry did that.
My experiences with GT's are 90% related to jetties and rocks, and while I have bounced a few off boats, boats are not my cup of tea for catching fish, they have a 86% mobility assist factor, worked out technically, and I prefer
things being stopped, like on gibbers. I have to admit that 86lb of GT would be a bit of a horror thing, on bricks or boats.
My backing line is 42lb and I use a 20lb test tippet. If I can't catch them with that, they get a win.
