Re: 12# sniper?

The two keys to fluorocarbon are to be very gentle when you pull out backlashes, and to really wet your knots. You are probably at the threshold of the breaking strength of 12 lb.

Re: Flip Pitch Punch Reel

Interesting reviews on the Crank FC and Sniper. What applications would you change from Sniper to Crank FC?
