The 2021 Legalis LT features our LT body (light, yet tough) constructed from a carbon-based composite that is much lighter than conventional materials, yet very durable. The Air Rotor and Air Bail also contribute to a much greater strength to weight ratio, making the reels lighter and easier to handle without fatigue over the long course of a full day of fishing.

These reels can work great with braid as well as monofilament lines from all top manufacturers. We personally recommend using braid as the mainline on top of some mono backing to use to stick to the spool and to fill the base layer of the spool with mono so you can save money on the braid.
We have tested a variety of lines over the years, and the 2 that seem to consistently score high for both breaking strength and casting distance are PowerPro & Daiwa's J-Braid 8 Grand.
For selecting the power rating to go with, it's best to go with a power that is in the recommended range for your reel of choice (range shown above in specs).
