Re: Loctite on knots

Locktide or superglue could decrease slippage but how they affect strength of lines? Could they partially dissolve lines or somehow
decrease their strength? IMHO it is require some searching and experiments.

Re: Fluorocarbon question

Thank you, John, May be some lines change their parameters like strength or(and) abrasion resistance in the salt water more than in the fresh. It also could be question of marketing. Like my friend answer on the question "What difference between whisky 7 and 15 years old?" "I haven't ...

Fluorocarbon question

I am fishing sometimes from the pier and when big striper or halibut rushing under the pier, line touch the concrete and brake. Therefore I've bought Seaguar Abrazx and only now discover that it is for FRESHWATER. Why I couldn't use it for saltwater? Seaguar divided their products for fresh and salt...

Re: FG knot question

I've been working on getting comfortable tying the FG knot to connect fluoro or mono leaders to my braid. I'm finding it interesting that the knot seems to behave differently in different combinations of line, both size and brand. At this point I have the mechanics of the knot pretty well under con...

Re: Nanofil Discontinued ?

......., I think, is with the ultralight crappie/panfish anglers. I doubt it'll ever be the "go to" line for the bass crowd. And, Sufix's Nanaobraid is smaller at the same tests, round, and a true braided line (for what that is worth) . . . so Nanofil could develop some stiff competition ...

Re: Nanofil Discontinued ?

I've used #4 Nanofil very successfully, including #7 brown trout. 1/12 ounce Kastmater flying a mile. I'll regret if Nanofil will discontinue. From where this information?

Re: Soft swimbait inline spinner rig?

Yeap. Re-rig Mepps spinners. City off those cheap trebles and put on a nice quality hook. They are not so chip. It is reliable VMC treble. About month ago I've landed 24lb striper on Mepps with same "chip" treble. By the way, majority of seasoned salmon killers using Mepps Flying "C&...

Thank you! Probably, you are right. I forget that in Japan is metric system.
In that case Armilo is stronger but less stretching.
Is it has more buoyancy vs.regular Shooter Defier?

Re: Defier Monofilament vs Super Natural Monofilament

Thanks. In another words, you want to tell that Defier has less memory and it is limp more that SNM. As I understand you have experience with both of them. I didn't used Defier yet, but with SNM I am fishing over 3 years without any problems you mention. Therefore I am curios about how reasonable to...

It's like comparing a chuck eye steak to a filet mignon. The chuck eye satisfies, but the filet mignon makes you hum while you chew it. Could you be more particular in describing of differences?

Re: Setting the hook on light line

You could use barbless hook that doesn't required to be set. Fish doing that itself.
