Do you love big bluegill?
I've pretty much used nothing but braid, for everything from Bluegill to Sturgeon, for the last 15 years. Granted, I'm sponsored by Western Filament, makers of the best braided line available ;) > TUF-Line..... but even if I weren't sponsored, I'm so hooked on braid, I'd pay whatever I had to, to keep using using it.
I use 2/12 on my micro-lights, as it's thin enough to put about 200 yards on a 1000 series reel, + it's very well suited to a rod rated for 1-4, or 2-6 lb mono (with zero stretch, a soft, forgiving rod is a plus).
Of course my leaders can be anything from 4lb mono for Sunfish, up to 50 lb braid for Sturgeon.
Anyway, are you a braid fisherman ?
Spool it up Jonathan.....your really gonna like this line. I'm also a big fan of the 4/1 crystal......probably the best line for spooning on all fronts.
The 6/2 has an actual break strength of close to 10 lbs, and has never failed me.
Will do. I also just got my first-ever baitcasting reel (Abu-Garcia Black Max) and put Fireline on that, too. Practiced a little tonight, but it's hard to do in the dark as a baitcast n00b :-)
I almost got a Shakespeare EZ-Cast but a guy who makes fishing instruction videos on Youtube (he gave me his card and I said "Hey, I know you from YouTube!) said it would be trashed after a few decent bass and recommended the Black Max instead. Seems like a good reel so far.
