Yes, I do use 30/40 lb fluoro Carbon leader at about 2 foot in length for all my crankbait rods.
Fishing Giant snake-head while they are in finicky mode is so much fun . ( the size is about 10 - 20lb )
Anyway they are many brands in my area but they are only good initially when they first launched..... after that they are plenty fake stuffs here. I am just thinking of exporting myself rather than getting it locally
Anyway mind to share what will be the best braid line you have used?
Thanks in advance,
The reason I asked about leader is if not using a leader but running straight braid its more cost effective to run a full spool of braid and then add backing as you use the line. In the long run hundreds of feet less line is used this way.
I dont use leaders I tie right to lure. My knots and line get right down on the bottom with IKAS, Senkos, paddletails dragged along bottom. The line that is working the best of the many, 15 or so braids Ive tried, is YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8. I have the 60# .012in dia test which is others 40-50# dia ratings. It showed no signs of wear after weeks of use with same hook no re-tying. It stays tight with its weave and casts very well. No wind knots like my Samurai 40# .012 dia was plagued with.
