Anyone ever try the 20lb (or 14) superline off their rigger rods? That stuff has the diameter of like 4 or 6lb mono, but isn't clear.

I'm tempted to buy enough and spool up one rigger rod and give it a go this year to see if it runs better or worse than mono. Someone here has to have 10 reasons why they like it or hate it.

We tried it off the riggers when the superlines came out (around 1992?). Did not like it, and ripped it off the reels before even midseason. Biggest problem was that the rigger releases werent very good at holding it, but there were other inconviences that just became a hassle. Personally i think mono is better for riggers, and superline for the dipsey.

ditto that. I've used it on riggers' too, and the line seems to just "slip" through the realease too easy, and that makes for a lot of extra work, especially when you are running 6 or more rods.

I tried both fire line and spiderwire,spriderwire didn't work very well at all,not only did it slip though your releases it tore up your pads.fireline worked much better but still slipped a little,they both can be used on riggers if you use rubberbands,sometimes it take two simple bury the rubberbands in the pinch pad after you have attached to line.

Would you use a mono of florocarbon leader to the lure? or just run the main line?
