It sounds like a good example of how to overload your rod. That is a tad too much line wieght for it. Unless your really easy, you will blow up your rod. And when you will do it is when you forget you have this monster line on and try and cast to a fish just a bit out of reach and really lean back and try load up a lot of line.. How much do you like your rod is the main question. I wouldn't take the chance. The line may be cheap, but the cost of replacing the rod is more..It would probably fit on the reel, but you may not have the needed backing space...Buy a couple lines, sell them for a few dollars more, get the cash and buy the right one...
