Abu Garcia Abumatic 1276SLi Spincast Reel
The Abu Garcia® Abumatic™ 1276SLi Spincast Reel is the only spincast reel specifically designed to handle today's superlines. Built for long-term reliability and performance, the Abumatic 1276SLi Spincast Reel's front cone, rotor, line guide and the rotating pick-up pins are made from titanium nitride which means less weight for a more comfortable feel. The ultra-smooth spool drag system ensures the 1276SLi is prepared to tackle any takers, while its dual rotating pick-up pins never miss collecting line onto the spool. The Abumatic 1276SLi offers Abu Garcia's 5 bearing Duragear™ gears with Instant Anti-Reverse, a feature that's typically reserved for baitcast reels only. In addition to being saltwater protected, this Abumatic is pre-spooled with 100 yards of 14 lb. Berkley FireLine.

The point of this being that the line capacity ratings of the 1276 with mono would be the same as is listed with the 476 with mono line. That being 120 yds 10# , 100 yds 12# & 80 yds 14#.
Assuming that your new Ugly Stik is a casting type of rod with a trigger it will work well with the 1276sli reel.
15 # Tuff Line Xp braid, 14# Stren braid as well as other brands that I have not tried with it will work very well with the 1276. That will just about give you a lifetime of use from the line. For best fishing the braided line could be used with an appropriate leader. Then you will never have memory problems with your line. I did not like the "superline" that came with the 1276 at all and imediately replaced that line with the Tuff Line.
Also for your information; both reels will also function very well with 10, 12, 14 or 15 pound test monofilament line.
It will land a 35 pound plus northern pike so it should handle a squid. If in the long run this reel did not work out with the super line. It is the same reel as the 476i with a little more titanium and more ball bearings. It will work very well with 10, 12, 14 or 15 pound mono line as with its 476i twin.
As with any new reel, service it before you use it. Most new reels come out without being properly lubricated.
