Just up graded from stren to spider wire and seagur. Haven't had chance to use Seaguar on water yet. Both in mono & flouro.

I went from Sniper Line to P line and love P line...

Now try McCoy Line.  Same stuff as P-Line and half the price!  1000yds for $25

If you set it up properly you will never cast out your old line.  Plus if you only fill your spool up half way you are reducing the full potential of the casting capability of the rod and reel setup.  You can gain (especially on lighter lures like crank baits) tons of distance by going to 10lb line and filling up to spool capacity.  On heavy lures it doesn't matter much how full you fill your spool. 

if your not casting the old line out then i dont understand how it is giving u better casting capability, i dunno, ive never done this and ive always been able to cast far. Seems to me the more crap line u have the better chance of getting a backlash, less line = less chance of insane birds nesting.

D'Chil, already use the uni-knot for braid. Instructions for that came with my old braid line type. Than tho. Plus, I have the knot wars app.

I use the same polymer knot for all my line and braid and have never had my line brake at the hook that I know of. I have gotten tangled up and had to brake the line and not once has it broke at the hook.

Uni-knot to tie 2 lines together. Mainly crap line to braid for backing. Just don't want to tie 50 yards x 3 on one reel. Don't think knots will hold.

We should have a casting contest.

Set up targets at different distances and point system. We could all put in like $10.00 winner takes all..
