Hi people,
I've noticed that Europeans tend to label their line in fractions of mm
eg 0.25 or 0.40mm
What does it translate to in the lbs scale?
Ok, Line has both mm and Lb strength mentioned on package but many reels of European origin (DAM??) simply state it in mm
Help

That is a broad question with an even broader answer. It used to be simple but now with new technologies you should never go by that table. In Japan/Hong Kong/China they now go you line number to make things more complicated.

Conventionally, If I am not mistaken .40 = 20lb line just as a guideline.

2 things you need to consider as an angler, 1 breaking strain so you know how to set your drag and 2 diameter for abrasion and knot tying. And if you are filling up your spool, make an educated estimate.

My two pence eljefe!
The line dia has nothing to do with the BS.
A thinner line could have a higher BS than another of the same dia, it all depends on the what goes into making the line.

We would all like to be using thinner lines so that we can load more of it on our reels. But can you really trust the BS printed on a spool?

I test this for my self, by attaching one end to a dial scales and go for break point with an eye on the scales. :lol:

I'm with you Bobby, i never set my drag by scales, and i am continously changing drag settings while fighting a fish depending on the fish and the water conditions. Probably not advisable for sea fishing.
An occassional bubble on the thumb is a nice feeling. :lol:

I am with Owen, I would guess 20lb mono, if you do not have the dia of the mono on the spool.

Thanks Owen,Neil
Surely great tips and did help clear the fog.Technical? me? no way Owen, just that the there is so much written on the packing/containers 8) I even read the jam bottle on the breakfast table :wink:
Actually, I guess, there is a barrage of info overload on us newbies.If I knew what I know today when I was in US last year, i would have picked up a lot of basic useful stuff- a couple more reels, swivels,line etc But the fun is also in meeting up with the IA gang and learning on the go...prefer it any day. I cant fish every day, much as I want to, but i can pop in 'Eljefe's stupid question of the month' and get some great, usable advice from you guys who've been there done that.Thats the best part of being a newbie angler.
Thanks again.
Axx
