Found this line at local tackle shop and it got my attention. Awa Ion power bay.
The line diameters to rated fish weight was really good.

The price is outstanding. So, I'm intetested to try the .50 for a shore game line for yellowtail. Is this quality line and will it stand up?

If anyone has used this can you give your thoughts.

Many thanks!

I believe it is overall a good quality line...however I have found with a few spools, I had, it kept breaking/snapping.

Obviously a bad batch/patch?

I have shied away from the Awa Shima products and have reverted to Berkley Big Game.

Of late I notice good ratings with Berkley Lines.
