Apparently some anglers believe the "best" knot is the most difficult to tie knot that only the most experienced anglers can successfully tie. On the other hand, I believe the best knot is one that is easily tied and can be duplicated repeatedly in all fishing situations...

Re: Best stealthy braid for clear water?

I don't think there is a "clear" PE braid. If you're trying to find the "stealthiest" braid, use the absolute thinnest diameter braid you can get away with.

Re: Light line leader connection

Alberto knot has been working for years. Tighten well, cut the mono tag right at the knot, leave 1/2" PE tag.

Your sarcasm is noted... please let us know how much of the 0.38mm is dyneema and how much of it is coating.

Re: New fireline fused 8 carrier

It is more sensitive than other braids when tying direct for shallow water bottom bouncing...but how much more sensitivity is really needed. I've been using original Fireline in tests <=10lb on spinning reels since the mid 1990s. With the exception of NanoFil, I haven't fished another braid that pr...

Easier and just as effective to leave a ~1/2" tag end

Seemed to me as an unnecessary and obvious statement unless the reviewer had noticed this reel to handle a line differently than all other reels in some situation.

Tutula SV TW review... what did you mean?

At the end of the Tatula SV TW review this statement was written: "The combination of the T-Wing System with the SV Spool and Ultimate Tournament Drag gives anglers an everyday reel that can handle the entire gamut of applications, as long as you have the right line for the job spooled on."
