This is not the trout model. The original Abel 4N is designed for large rods. I bought it for tarpon to pair with the 12 wt St Croix. Go the the Abelreels.com website, specifications and find the Big Game Standard Arbor 4N. It will show the capacities for 11 and 12 wt lines. It will hold a 12 wt line with 275 yards of backing. I don't know how to add a photo, but my daughter helped me list on Craigs List and ebay with photos. Look there for a photo. I'm in the Woodlands area and if you are in the Houston area I will be happy to show you the outfit.
