Agree, dry vs wet is irrelevant as braid could break as u are being spooled by fish. Sentiment shared by shop.

tests were done under constant pressure with shop owner holding scale . . . no jerking or sudden hard pulling like a fish would sometimes do.

my stellas are currently only spooled with braid as we intend to plug and jig 90% of the time.

i'm gonna check casting distance with 50lb mono this weekend and if there is +/-5m loss in distance, then i'm switching to mono as i need to know its pulling power is constant. if Gt's run, we're dead so line must stop it dead on the take.

Reefman, maybe we can do tests on 16 Feb. I can then still change to leave for kilwa on 17 feb
