I'm particularily interested in two applications:
1) looking to find a more cost effection option over smackdown for spinning rods, right now i run 20lb smack down was was looking to maybe use 15lb kastking kastpro. Basically same diamter and 25% the cost
2) something that basic, holds up and doesn't wind knot for buzz baits, was planning to get power pro or something basic but might try out the kastking super power. I have been trying the samuri and other similar "limp" braids but man if i throw into the wind with anything that grabs the air it catches in the spool and stops the bait dead....drives me off the walls.
If its junk then so be it but thought it was worth a try
Great line for the price.
No its not catching in the spool from being dug in like you might get after snagging on wood or something, its catching during that small amount of backlash that momentarily occurs on your spool when you first launch a cast, with most other lines that backlash occurs briefly and is eliminated while the bait travels through the cast pulling line out. With the really limp braids they are so limp they "catch" or "knot" slightly in that initial back last and stops the cast dead, particularly if casting into the wind or with a bait that likes to grab air. a stiffer line won't catch like that.tywithay wrote:If it's stopping the spool dead on the cast, you need a larger diameter braid. Most folks won't go less than 30, to prevent it from digging.
