Just came across a Quick 220 reel, would like to know what is the heaviest test line I can use on it. There are no test markings on the reel. THANKS

If it doesn't have line weight markings on it, you might want to compare it to some other reel to get a sense of what's best suited to a reel that size. For example, if it's a medium sized reel like a 2500 Shimano or a 20 size Quantum, you're probably best off running 8-10lb test mono, which should give you 100-120 yard capacity and better line handling.

You could run 14-20 lb. test, or, conversely, 4-6 lb. test, but why bother if it's a medium sized reel?

Whatever you do, don't use braid, the reel was never designed foe that harsh line, and braid will likely cut a groove in the roller & bail, rendering he reel useless.

You can use whatever size line you want. When there line sizes printed on the reel it is only to tell you how much line the spool will hold, it has nothing to do with what size is "right" for that reel.
