Hi folks,

I'm planning to order some mono spools for the shoppe and would like your inputs as to which breaking strength to order. Please select the line strength you use normally for your fishing.

You may vote only once so choose carefully.

If your favoured line strength is not listed choose the one closest to that.

braids, sinkers, hooks, spinners.... will all be sold when you tight fisted buggers actually buy something from the shoppe :D

This doesn't hold for all those nice ppl that have ordered from the shoppe :wink: It's annual renewal time for the website guys, it costs me a lot of money to run this forum. The least you ppl can do is give the shoppe some business.

Having just 'converted' to braids I have to put up a fight here. Though I voted for the 20lbs mono I still would go for some 30lbs braid.

Mono is cool and all that about it absorbing shock, etc. But look at the advantages of braid. You cast further coz of its smaller dia. Your plugs also run true coz this. You need a smaller (lighter reel). You feel each and every bump, nibble and bite. You reel in the fish faster. I could go on... As for the shack absorbing bit, abrasion, etc... a few feet of leader (FlUorocarbon or mono) will take care of them.

So give me braid any day!!

HI Ken,

I too agree on the braid part of it. I have just picked up some braid line, (25lb, 35lb & 45lb) but have to still get to changing the line on all my reels. As of now I still have my mono (20lb, 30lb, 40lb & 50lb) line on & will probably change it just before the next season starts ie; sept.

Any feedback on dyneema braid ? cos this is what I picked up

I'm just waiting for my new toys to come in from the US. :wink:

I think 20 Lb is the best option. Gives u the desired leverage and fair chance of landing the fish and its not unfair on the part of the fish as well. But where there are more rocks I think 30 Lbs is a better option.

Saiki!

Platypus is a great brand for mono. In fact, the best i think. I am sure they will do a great job on braid too. I would trust them.

cheers

Guys, my suggestion is not to use braid for bait fishing in lakes etc. Braid is excellent for what it was designed for ie. lure fishing.

In any situation that demands the line be in contact with the lake bottom or sand,rocks etc mono is a better bet. Braid has very low abrasion resistance compared to mono.

Saiki, If I had to make these braids available to members it would have to be at double the price. Not practical at all.

Bops, I read in many articles that thin lines are more suitable for spinning reels like 15lb or 20lb test lines and also that mono lines are more suited to spinning reels that braided.

hello folks



I think 20lb is good enough, but the quality of the line and drag of the reel also matters....

Bops,

I voted for 20 lb mono. If there was an option for 25 lb line, then I would have chosen that. 25 lb mono I think will do good for both bait as well as some big lures.

Foe murrel I prefer a 12 or 14 lb monofiliment line , diameter and colour not to fussy, but want a line with a good knot breaking strength. I have lost spinners which fly free at a jerk.

I think most important issues are
line visibility, color, memory, knot strength etc
