Re: 10lb Power Pro and baitcast reels?

I've used 10lb PP on my PX-R quite a bit. Never had any issues either.

Re: Braided Line sticking to itself on the reel ..

Braid will dig into itself on the spool. To prevent this, just make sure to wind the braid on as tightly as possible. It should feel hard when you have it all spooled, and not mushy or space in tbetween. Line size matters too.

Re: Sunline Assassin

Fluoro is more dense and less porous than mono or braid. From my experience, it seems that the line conditioner doesn't last very long on fluoro. The conditioner does work for a little while, but you have to reapply it too frequently for my taste. I would guess that the Assassin is even less porous...

Re: Sunline Assassin

Maybe I need to start treating my line with that conditioner. I'd like to see if I notice a difference. I do like tatsu though! I like shooter better. If it comes down to you throwing the tatsu away and mailing it to me I'll give you my address :D. It can be stiff though I'll admit that. It really ...

Re: Sunline Assassin

I used 15lb. I normally use Sniper in all strengths. I almost didn't want to say I had a bad experience with it because I felt like the oddball lol But truth is, it was awful, and really was a pain to deal with. I'm using it on a Steez LTD, and backlashes are are to come by, so it was pretty obvious...

Re: Sunline Assassin

So I was excited to try this line, mainly because I have been using cheaper line lately. I spooled up Friday, and Saturday my steez was a pain the the ***. There was a lot of memory and was dealing with coils all day. I didn't use KVD on it, but being that I spooled it Friday, it should have been fi...

WHAT ARE THOSE? :crying:

That's the first thing that comes to mind! How the hell are these selling out? To me they look childish and tacky.

Re: Sunline Assassin

I'm a diehard Sniper guy, but I broke down and ordered a spool of the Assassin in 15lb. during the current TW sale. I'll let you all know how it compares to Sniper once I get some on the water testing. So am I. But the past couple of months I've been using cheaper line (CXX), and while it's tough, ...

Am I the only one that hates those knobs? Lol No oil and no bag? At $400 every reel should come with oil, no excuses for that.
