hi all,

can anyone hook me up with some knowledge of casting main line.

i am attending a casting improvement day in two weeks time and am unsure what line to fit to my reel. i would primarily be hitting out 150g weights but may go up on the day,

surfcast wales website states that for casting 150g it must be a 0.31mm thick mainline atleast and for casting 175g it should be 0.35mm.
and it should be high vis mono.

could anyone give me some advice on what line please:g:

its purely personal choice tbh.

for absolute maximum distance then most choose quality lines such as Daiwa Tournament or Sakuma Night Crystal but if you are just learning then i would suggest you use the cheapest line that you can find thats thick enough.

the likelyhood is that you will be respooling a fair bit at the beginning:huh:

Ultima do a nice range of lines - I personally use Seastrike in 0.28-125g, Distance in 0.31-150g & Red Ice in 0.35-175g.
Consistant in daimeter and it doesn't break the bank at £15 per 1lb (1/2 kilo spool) from the UKSF.
