  2. I just bought a President 6935, and tried to spool 150 yds of 50lb test braided line onto the reel. The reel says it can handle 220 yds of 10 lb test and 160 yds of 14 lb test. The 50 lb test braid is a 12 lb test equivalent diameter, so I'd figure I should have no problem getting 150 yards of line on it, but it's way overfilled at about 100 yds of line. I kept plenty of tension on the line while spooling it onto the reel. Whats wrong? Thanks!
