By no means am I an expert but here's how I'd set up your reels.

Shimano 30tld 2sp
100 hollow Spectra w/80 mono, pick your brand, Izor and JB both make good products. This reel will come apart if you push it over 80lb.

Shimano 20 Single
Shamano 20 what?

Penn 4/0
60lb hollow Spectra

Torium 30
My Trinidad 30 is set up with 60 hollow and either 30lb or 40lb 100yd+- mono topshot

Avet MX
40lb spectra w/25 or 30lb topshot

Diawa Sealine 30
60lb hollow spectra w/30lb or 40lb topshot

Here is one way I'm sure others may chime with what they would.

TLD 30 II 60lb
TLD 20 single 50lb
avet LX 40lb
Toriun 30 30 or 40lb
Avet mx 25
sealine 30 30lb

Edit: I presonaly would not fish 80lb on a 30 II without aftermarket drag plate and metal frame, do to the brackage listed above.

Buy a 12-1500 yard spool of good 50# spectra do all the reels and use different topshots.
IF you get into anything bigger use the boat rods.

SCA,
Like this 50? I've seen a 30 do the same thing but the owners were fishing 100 or 130 on them.

Yes something like that Keta. That reel looks like it's missing the reel seat and I have seen more brakage do to using a harness and high drag pressures with the TLD reels. The reels twist while hooked to a harness and fail.

I think over torquing of the reel clamp is a factor too. These reels just aren't built for catching cows with 100/130 class line.
