where do you guys come up with your numbers?

For example the Saltist 6500H

Mono line Capacity is 250 yards of 30 pound but 550 yards of 70 pound Daiwa Samurai.

Something isn't adding up because on the Daiwa Samurai site

http://www.daiwa.com/Line/line_samurai.aspx

Its says 70 pound Samurai has the Diameter of 0.016 inches. So if we take 250 x .022 (common line diameter of most 30 pound monos) it equals 6.6 total capacity factor

550 x 0.16 equals 8.8 TCF

There is two things that I think, one you guys have your numbers messed up and two Samurai is thinner than published or stated, which I tend to agree on because I have 30 pound and 55 pound Samurai and it seems extremely thin compared to powerpro and Suffix Braid in similar sizes.

No way a saltist 6500 holds 550 yards of 70 pound braid.

Its more like 415 yards of 70 pound braid. (6.6 / .016 = 412 yards)

The reason I am asking is I did the numbers because I have two Saltist 6500's that I have to put backing on and I need to know how much because I have two spools of 55 pound Samurai that are 300 yards each.

I just thought I would pass a long your mono and braid numbers don't add up. I always go by mono anyway and convert it over because Mono line diameter has more of a standard than braid.
