i use ultima f1 and think its the best out there.
Always thought you couldnt get better than ultima f1 myself, until about 6 weeks ago, bought a spool of 20lb (£11) attached shock leader cast out SNAP, thought it was a dodgy knot replaced leader cast again no prob, felt a couple mack on, started winding in SNAP, wound in and found the knot had given way, later learned of a thread on here it doesnt have a good knot strength,now use daiwa sensor and had no probs since.

Yep I will second that. I got a big spool of Ultima Distance from Blakdog Tackle and now its all I use for fishing. It breaks way higher than its quoted Breaking Strain and I've had no problems using it over rough ground.

I use powersteel 15lb and am very impressed with the knotting and feel off the spool when casting. I then bought 1/2 kilo of F1 that I just cant knot and wish I hadnt bought
