Hi Ben

Welcome to the board buddy :P

The Jarvis walker is an australian version of Penn. That reel has a big line capacity. (test/yards) 20/450, 25/370, 30/340
If you were to use the braid on it you would need to first spool it with 200 yards of mono as a backing and attach the braid to that. The 700s isnt the high end of Penn reels so Im not sure it would stand up to a great big fish but it will certainly get you started. Another consideration would be whether it handles braid well. I know my 9500 doesnt handle it that well.
I guess you have to cast a bunch of time with it to find out.

The jig man says it has to do with the reel oscillation properties.

:P

The braid is very thin compared to mono. The diameter is much smaller. There is a chart somewhere on the board. Ill have to search it out.

The line capacity ratings on the reel are for mono. so it can fit much more braid than mono. Thats why we back it.

You can on the smaller reels but the bigger reels need more backing.

These are the specs for powerpro that the jigman posted. The diameter is similar to most braids so you can see you would need 200 pound test to accomodate the reel with braid.

Im a big fan of Dacron backing...

whether its on braid, wire or leadcore...Dacron (for me) is key.

The advantages to the dacron backin is that it wont stretch. and it doesnt age or break down as fast as mono.
Mono is much cheaper. A little bit of a concern with me. With everything else, I dont use braid as often as I use mono. So maybe using dacron here would definately be an advantage. Especially if its on there a few seasons.

I use mono alot...I rarely use braid...Trilene Big Game is my line of choice. When I troll with wire or leadcore...Dacron is the backing I use. I know the price is higher but it will usually last a couple of seasons. I just change the mono every year.

I change all my mono, after every season or sometimes in the middle of the season...its also imporatant to wash down your reels, becasue it takes the salt off the line. I find that if you take care of your line it will minimize problems. Also...quality swivels minimize line twists...

...but any mono is gonna have memory.
