Re: best 2-6lb line

I'm switching to suffix 12lb braided with a 10# mono leader on all my spinning poles. Great casting, no stretch, can jig or spin cast. Think line just comes down to personal preference.

Keep it tight your line that is.

I agree the superline is sensitive and casts better than any other type of line. I just took off Power Pro and put on P-line Floroclear. I loved the Power Pro for being so supple, no memory, and casting with no birds nest. the P-line is springing off the reel like it's a spring. Not happy so far, but maybe it will break in.

I was worried about the Power Pro being visible to the fish.That's why I switched. Not so sure i'm going to worry about it now and I might go back to Power Pro. I really hate lines that have too much memory.

I recently spooled up with berkley trileene extra limp and have had knot problems along with quite a few more than normal break offs. The extra limp stuff works great in 8lb test for bass but i have not been happy with it in 2lb test.* My buddy has been using the new 4lb berkley trileene max and seems to like it a lot so far.
I have tried vanish in 6 lb. and liked it initially since it is virtually invisible underwater. After a few months of use I found the line started breaking extremely easy just by me pulling on the line with two hands. I am not sure if I had a bad batch of line but I ended up replacing it with sensation

It's that 6x that gets hard to that way.
You can cut superline with you teeth?
I don't think I've ever used super line. I just use the regular old stren invisi-green 6lb test, and every mono that I've ever used up to about 10lb test I can usually cut with my teeth.
Yes, but he was talking about superline. It's tough stuff to cut.

The advantage, at least to me, is it`s castability and durability. Another plus is that you can add a bit of Flourocarbon as a leader.......... no, it doesn`t compromise the rig......it still has the over-all sensitivity of the Fireline. If you are using 4 to 6 # Fireline you will discover that you can easily tie a blood-knot between the Fireline and a 4 # flourocarbon..........thus eliminating any swivels which could hinder the casting process. This does not seem to be the case with heavier monos though. As to cutting the line........ my ever trusty Swiss Army Knife has a sweet little scissors.
I think what he means by compromising the rig is a setup is only as strong as it's weakest link. The superline setup with a flouro leader is now only as strong as the leader. At that point it doesn't matter how strong the superline is.
