    Thinking about changing over to braid so as to increase casting distance and bite detection. I like the idea of high poundage straight through so there's less to worry about knots and getting weed stuck in top eye Ect ect but have read a lot about if you get snagged you could snap anywhere along...

    Hi there looking for the best braid for a 6500c tried spider wire code red at 0.35mm and really didn't Like it. Found the braid was more than the stated diameter and was wondering what braid you all fish on your 6500c/7ht size reels was tempted to try a 18lb round profile braid with a 60lb shock...

    As what the title says; when beach fishing using braid (20lb-30lb), do you guys prefer using a heavy braid shockleader or a mono shockleader and why? A lot of people seem to have troubles when using braid mainline and mono leader cos they get crack offs, but surely a braid leader with braid...

    Hi all i asked this question about braid for my 7000c reels but I should have asked about my 6500c reels, would you still stick with 0.40 diameter or would you come down in diameter given the size difference of the spools?

    Hi all I'm currently using spiderwire code red on both my 7000cs, I kinda fancy trying some of the Berkley whiplash braids next...would you suggest sticking with the 0.40mm diameter or could I use a smaller diameter and still avoid bedding? Would be grateful for all your suggestions :)
