The Battle is a 5.6:1 with 37 in line recovery with 7BB (6BB;1RB) 220/15 lb test. This reel is 20.3 oz all metal reel.
My $0.02 is to spool with 20-30# braid or 16-20# mono depending on the rods specifications.
Unless you plan on targeting med/lrg sharks/rays then anything over 30# is just overkill and cost too much money.
Kind regards, Capt. Mike
I fish with 10-15lb sufix or ohero braid, colors green, ghost(white) or ohero blue with a 5ft flurocarbon leader depending on the rod length which helps around spooky fish. Just try to avoid having the knot above the last couple of eyes on the rod when reeled in completely.
Happy trails, Capt. Mike
Open it up and coat all internal surfaces/parts with a light layer of grease.
Use Cal's Grease on the drag washers.
Thorough wash down with freshwater.
Open housing and check for water.
Dry and oil.
