Hi mate, TiForged Double foot guides or MW50s with the 12 running guides also handle 60lb braid. Find them on the American Tackle Company site. For sizing, you need to know a few more things. Length is your blank, Spool diameter, Reel stem angle and so on. Ther is some good videos on Youtube Lou Caruso. One of the best. Ive modified his technique a bit and come up with my own that works reall
