What's the best in Mono for 4,6,8# Ultralite spinning these days?

Trilene "Sensation" sounds like it could be good if there's truth in advertising. "low stretch, small diameter, super strong, casts small baits further, sends crankbaits deeper, abrasion resistant", leaps tall buidings in a single bound , etc. Other Trilene lines have worked well for me so I'll probably give it a try.

Spinning?

Just buy a slinky and twist it on there, that's how it's going to end up anyways.

Something clever here.

Try fireline in #8 or #10 lb test...its #3 diameter, and easier to yank out of brush if need be...NO stretch..

If mono is your thing Berkeley #6 XT.....

Tried that...we didn't get along...I throw mostly spinners and they tend to roll in the air..the PP was soooo limp ( zero memory) that it would often just get wrappped around the spinner. #10 Fireline has just enough "memory" to avoid most of that...otherwise PP was what initially got me hooked on something other than mono...I liked it...

Berkley Trilene XL is what I use. Whether or not it's the absolute best mono made today - I dunno. I like it well enough that I buy it bulk spools and I've quit experimenting with other brands. My best friend is a pro bass fisherman and he's fished just about every mono made. It's his prefered choice of line for spinning reels too.

Braids have their place and I like em' a lot - just not on spinning reels though. To each his own.

Only prob I have with braids on a spinning rig is if it spools up loose then digs into itself on the spool from a hook set.... Hangs up then on the next line release or cast.

But cold weather memory on most monos drives me bat chit loony. (more so than I am naturally)

I spool by having one of the kids do the Burnin' Pencil Trick(though the new PP packages curtail some of it) and purposely over filling the skirt. I then tie it to the front door handle and stroll down to the beach,until I hit the knot on the skirt. The drag then gets yammed to Crazy Tight and rod tip pointed home,while reeling it on with vengeance.

Precludes most all "weirdness" and I'm a pinched finger reeler inner too. That whether it braid or mono......................

Same-o same-o here...it allows me to catch stuff like this on a 4' 9" rod, with a Shimano 500 reel...



[Linked Image]

And I use the same outfit for these...

But lately Ive invested in a 5'6" rod and a Shimano 750...kinda the "AI" version... laugh

Yeah I hear ya on the freeze, Most of my fishing these days is ice fishing and the braid does tend to play a better host to water beeds that freeze on the line, which complicates slip bobber fishing but...

The overall tangle factor is much lower IMO, plus the strength plus the no stretch... It all makes it the better choice for me, especially when fishing with kids that are learning to fish.

For tip up fishing as silly as it might sound to some, my cousin used to run fly line on his tip up spools. I always ran heavy braided nylon or dacron (and I still do)

But I have to admit he was onto something with that floating heavy fly line. It was tough as hell, had good stretch which made it nice for hand over hand pike pulling on 20 plus lb fish, pert neer impossible to cut your hands with the stuff and when you got done hand over handing 30 yds of line and had that pile of string at your feet on the frozen ice, that stuff just wouldn't tangle or ice up like my braided line.

Downside was it really filled a spool, couldn't fit nearly the length.

I said "frozen ice"



Is it Monday in here or is it just me? lol!!

That's like one of my favorites "hot water heater"

Really? It's not just a water heater?
