|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.
