8 lb power pro braid. Its only 1lb diameter, super strong, great knot strength, no stretch, and does not twist! I love the stuff and i think ralph smith will agree
Yepper! Love the fireline, been using it sense it came out, but been switching up to this lately on jigging and casting rods. A barrel swivel on the end and some 6 or 8lb. fluorocarbon, and they don't stand a chance That is if they bite first:lol:
I use 6lbs braid on my reels on the river through the ice with the smallest black ball bearing swivel 2' above my lure and black cross snap swivel (just the part that goohs to the lure) to the lure...I am in a heated shanty and if I go out of the shanty wit braided line freezes up really quick so depends if ur in heat shanty wether to use braid or mono...and never ever put a full swivel to your lure. almost every fish will bite at the swivel before the hook (use the smallest black swivs u can find so they dont flash and dont affect the lure action the way the manufacturer designed to.they make lure to be tied to line...so all you guys using braid dont have problems with it freezing up/sticking on spool. I tried braid and it was freezing up on the spool. maybe you guys are using ice braid i dont know. I switched to 10lb fireline now, not liking how it feels and it has tons of memory but havnt fished it yet maybe it will change a bit
Fer sure. 6# crystal for eyes, steelhead, everything. Barrel swivel and mono leader for a little shock absorber. I tend to get trigger happy and set the hook kinda hard.10lb Fireline is pretty heavy for river Jigging presentations.., We use 4lb. Fireline crystal..
