Choose the right line: Match the FireLine line diameter (not pound strength) to the equivalent Mono line diameter that you normally use (Example: 8 lb. mono = 8/20 FireLine). Be sure to spool your line as tight and uniform as possible.


Well then whats the point of using braid as a backing? In the case of what they are saying, they use is as it is stronger than mono. We as anglers are using it not for strength to say, but more for capasity.

I would also love to know the following and not too sure of how to get an answer out of the following. When we have a fish on, that has taken 300 meters of mono out and you are into your backing. How much pressure (lbs) is being put onto the braid? Hard to tell.
