On your torium 50 I would suggest 750m of 80lbs Whiplash and 200m of 0.60mm (50lbs) topshot.

You can spool lighter but then you can only operate the reel at 40% of it's drag setting when you get deep into the braid

Are you casting or kayaking the bait?

The setup mentioned here with a 1.5mm windon leader will allow casts of up to 140m for sliding.

When fishing of deep water points and piers you can go up to 80lbs braid with 70-80lbs topshot with a good windon leader.

ok soooooooooo.  did you mean to type 80lb wihplash?  theres no way the reel will hold that.  i have been watching alot of the asfn videos on youtube and they say 50lb mono but they dont talk about the braid.

also the guy in the video said he has 600m of 0.55 line on top of his braid.   how is this posible.   im preety sure they dont make toriums bigger there.

i get that i need a 50lb top shot of atleast 150 yards.  get it


what about the braid.  and what lb.

30lb test mabey?

40.

80lb braid , preferably whiplash (due to its minimal diam)

Wind the braid on tightly, taking care to lay it very evenly.
(search the forums for spooling braid)

On top of that mono-filament +- 200mtrs / 0.60mm

tight lines

I have 600m of 75lbs Hmp (RSA made) braid on 2 x 50's and 700m of 80lbs whiplash on one and 750m of 75lbs Hmp on the other

On the reels with 600m of backing I get 330yds of 0.60(50lbs mono) on top or 210yds of 0.80mm (90lbs mono)

Minimum braid I recommend for a Torium 50 is 65lbs but prefer 75-80lbd.

The only reason those guys use 50lbs is competition regulations state max 50lbs for record.application purposes.

When a Tor is 30% full and the drag is set to sunset it is close to 60lbs so it's in my opinion senseless using 50lbs braid which drops to 44lbs or less in its connection to the topshot.

Having 1200yds 50lbs braid and 330yds of 40lbs mono is in my opinion senseless for big sharks because the further the fish is offshore the greater the chance of snagging is or another animal swimming into your line.

You can also only put 25% less pressure on your fish which can be very telling in a long fight.

A Torium 50 is a Torium 50 anywhere in the world.

It will take 660yds of 50lbs berkley whiplash and 660yds of 0.55mm (0.022")
