.130 flex cable on 29" mono???

Hi I am wondering if a .130 flex cable is strong enough to handle a 29 inch mono running on 4s? Any input is appreciated.
thanks

"if" you are running a small prop and mild spec type motor it should survive. Otherwise I'd suggest going to at least a .150

I'd go with a .187 cable it's not going to cost any more then a .150 cable system and is a lot stronger . Just my opinion .

I have a .150 cable coming in the mail right now. I am running a .130 cable in my boat at the moment, the cable is surprising really strong, but that won't last.
