Two years now with the Shimano Twin Power XD C3000HG, and a couple of months with the new Shimano Stradic 2500HG-FL spinning reel
If your mainline is arguably the most important part of your fishing setup, what braid would you want to have on your reel if and when you hook that fish of a lifetime?
If you use a fluoro or mono leader for your lure fishing, what influences your choice of leader material, and does a more expensive line make much difference?
Can the thickness of your leader ever actually affect your catch results? (the endless joys of breaking strains and diameters!)
Sufix 131 G-Core braid review - £40+ for a 150m spool, £75+ for a 300m spool
Sufix X8 braid review - the replacement for Sufix Performance Pro 8, still well under £20 for a 150m spool
Van Staal VR50 review - not cheap, bought in the US, have now sold it, gutted……….
At 79cms long and in seriously good condition, I feel entirely confident that yesterday afternoon I landed my first 10lb+ bass from the shore
Do many of you here NOT use a fluoro or mono leader on the end of your braid?
I had a quick go with the new waterproof and sealed Van Staal VR50 spinning reel - how much sense does it make for our lure fishing?
So far these braid leaders are working really well
It wrecks my head when you give it a go this time of year, you lose a nice fish, then you’re left wondering and never knowing
