I have 250 yards of SA 30# dacron and a Rio MS 6/7 with tips with room to spare.

With 200 yds of 30lb Dacron, It takes a 9/10 midspey with plenty of room to spare, a 9/10 SA short head pretty close to full and I think a 9-10-11 WC with plenty of room to spare. Unless you are sticking a 8/9 Grandspey or XLT you should be just fine.

Hope it helps

Agreed. This reel is close to the capacity of a 3 3/4" Perfect. It will hold all except long bellied 8/9s and if you are comfortable with less than 200 yds of 30# dacron, most 9/10 lines.

Right
I Have one for my 6126 sage with 6/7/8 WC and one for the fly logic 14/8 with 9/10/11 WC. There is plenty of room to spare even with the 9/10/11, however bigger longbelly's may be tight. :)
BTW, the new Bougle' has a different sound than the mk 4. It comes from being drilled out.
