At the risk of sounding like a smart alec, enough to cast the distance I wish to cast. In other words, if I'm casting say 30', I use enough belly to cast 30'. However, if I'm casting 110', I have all the belly of a long-belly line off the reel plus enough running line to reach that distance. That is why I said, "Enough to cast the distance I wish to cast".
