I do a lot of slack-line rod tip twitches, small jerkbaits etc where I'm winding slack a lot...and I find some of the stiffer more wiry braids (that work so beautifully on baitcasters) forms rather frequent loops under the spool. Has anyone tried the 14lb YGK Upgrade on spinning reels for stuff like shaky heads/ned/tight lining etc?
Any other recommendations for a finesse braid on spinning reels that is relatively limp but won't absorb as much water as jbraid x8?
I tried 30lb and it didn't work out well at all switched to 50lb recently and its working better for me
As far as spinning set ups i haven't tried the x8, but i do really like this line from YGK, i have it on 2 of my combo's and haven't had an issue with it so far and ive pretty much exclusively fished it in salt water

i have 16lb on one combo and either 10 or 14 on the other one, so far its holding up, casts great, no wind knots, casts super far
if i was rigging up another spinning rod today this is the line i would order and i have lots of PP, PP ss v2, sufix braid, jbraid etc.
Yeah I believe I have 40 or 45 of the x8 Upgrade, works very well on my baitcasters.
The SS112...is it more like the YGK Upgrade, stiffer than J braid x8? I've been eyeing that line for awhile.
