Looking to make up some windon leaders, 1.5mm, anyone have line recommendations in that thickness they'd like to share?

When making such thick windons for Rock and Surf the key is abrasion resistance and not strength, you couldn't break 200lbs mono by hand if you try.

Perlon 100m hanks or the commercial hanks sold by Big Catch online shop is all you need.

For Boat fishing then High end I would look to get Ande or Moi Moi but becomes difficult to cast such a hard line. BUT these are 8 - 10 times the price of lines sufficient for Rock and Surf leaders

Shogun is also a really good option

Thanks, will give the Perlon a try, have had good experience with their 0.55 high abrasion and 1.2mm Techniperlon.
