Hi ALL,
I am looking at 100yards 60 & 80 lbs mono for my next trip October (lots of time). Because of the NE side party boat wants 100 yards (braid backing), I need a mono line that’s strong and thin so I can use the smallest reel possible. Mostly targeting 20-40lbs so if I don’t have to I really don’t want bring Avet30Pro (too heavy).
Thoughts

Attached a chart I stole off the internet, would be nice if what the manufactures stated is true, so want to hear for actual users.

Not so easy to find good info, so owning a set of calipers can be well worth the money. For mono, all lines aren't created equally. Thin diameter MAY also test lighter than some fatter lines of same rated test. Example Izorline First String 60# - I can get 78 lbs out of a good crimp. In our knot busting competitions that line is used as the reference with winning knots in the 90's!!! I do personally favor Izor's product, and fish their XXX often if I'm running mono. Diameter is skinny and it tests heavy.


Great Stuff!
