Does anyone use the cheap Chinese braid on Ebay for shockleader material? My main concern is what I think has a B?S of 100lb might break under a lot less pressure!
Improved Allbright with extra turns has always worked well for me for leader/mainline knots, but like Big Spurrie, I also use 80lb line straight through if I'm fishing rougher groundThe threads about cheap Chinese braid as shock leader. You wont bust casting ,I bought the 100lb stuff from agepoch and its as tough as old boots. The problem I had with it was tying the shock leader knot. My be ok with a back to back uni knot but I prefer a different knot which is less bulky.
Some one told me a similar story about fake power pro, said it was horrible stuff . What I've found out on this forum if you a honest genuine review about any fishing product your wasting you time. Even if something is crap people always justify there purchase. Getting more like Sea angler every day . Maybe the new owners of this site ought to think about changing its name.Personally I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, it's cheap shect and fake, some of the fake power pro was found out to be sewing braid & completly ubsorbed water, there's plenty of products out there that are resonable priced & strong, why use cheap rubbish?.
To be fair to the agepoch 100lb as leader there's nobody on this planet who'll bust it casting. It was only the knot problem with me, and believe me i,m dead picky. Honest opinion its ok , and I don't tell porky's unlike some.You could just kill someone if it cracks off and goes sideways, glad your fishing at the other end of the country lol. Can't understand why folk think they can buy decent gear for that sort of money, I pay more than that for 10 worms.
