Why can't we get a new line review?

It's been quite a while since we've gotten a good line comparison review. With the right instrument and tools it shouldn't be that hard to do. I'd much rather see a comparison of various lines than to see a lure cut apart lol

I asked the same thing this spring in March and Cal responded. He said they were working on it and hoped to have it out this year. They are going to test them in the lab as well as fish with them themselves. Takes time but I'm ready for it too. Thats the #1 reason I keep checking this site. Just for the line reviews

I agree that a new line review would be nice, but there are so many more products out today in every line category that I think it would be very difficult to review all the lines in any category. There will probably be a few disappointed people if TT doesn't review all the lines in a category. Also, my real world knot results are different than the TT lab tests with several of the fluoros that TT reviewed in the past.

That's why I say people have different levels of knot tying skills. :big grin:

I just stick to what I'm comfortable with cuz my knot usually holds while the line breaks in the weakest point. I don't need any Knot Wars...

Yes, almost any knot will do if you tie it correctly. Fluoro is considerably less forgiving than mono with knots and wetting the knot very thoroughly is every bit as important as what knot you tie.
