|Not all braid is of same diameter.
Go to the above link and scroll down to see actual breaking strengths and average diameters.
Also, a white line packs on more yards than colored.
There are quite a few fans of the 300 Curados here on this forum ... I like the smaller reels, but have to get tricky to get more line capacity (i.e. using 65 or 80lb hollow core line and splice in 40lb backing to base of reel).
Now, 80 yards is a bit sketchy, but you are right there at the minimum ... try to get a solution to get you up to 90+.
