Well we had several good examples of leader lines to use and I think I will be giving the maxima a try. But what about main lines, I would like to hear what everyone else is using. My self I have always used 10 XL and just veried the leader material.Last year I tried Fire Line and really liked its sensitivity and strength but tying a knot and trimming it was a pain. Lets hear it all, also I'm looking for a new spinning reel for my Swan rod. Any suggestions?
