Spooling Baitcast reels with line

Hey guys and girls,

It's been about 8 years since I seriousky used a baitcaster, and I've just purchased a Saltist HRF.

I've spooled it with about 30 Mtrs of mono backing, connecting via an allbright to 20 Lb Fireline smoke original. It took a full spool of 114 Mtrs and this has filled it to the spool lip so to speak.

Not the very edge of the spool, but the lip where it curves and joins into the frame. In ecsence, there is about 3 millimetres of spool still visible.

Does this sound right?

I would post a piccie, but my camera said "NO SOUP FOR YOU"
