Alan - Those JM Bobbins really are amazing tools, and make the PR knot tying sooooo much easier, and agruably, more consistant as well! 



Andre,its a toss-up between just sitting and staring at my JM 16 000 spool and the JM-bobbin,both sheer things of beauty,I can understand why yourself and Roy are so lyrical about them.Must say the service from Linda was excellent as well. I liked the way that the 55lbs Saltiga BB also bit into the Gel/wax coated Power-pro,much like the concept when tying mono leader to braid using PR. I unravelled one or two, and the ''bite-marks'' are very distinct.

Maybe I'm going nowhere with this,and I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel,but I dont want to fight a fish back for 120meters,and then get cut-off 5-10meters from my feet,because of terrain.(I see it happen too often) The Power-pro have withstood the abrasion test already,just need a long enough length (10-12meters) and for it to tow my braid out seamlessly.

Cheers
