    Has anyone tried the red Shakespeare Cajun Line? I was going to buy a roll of 20# to put on my Abu.Let me know if you have used it and if it is any count. Thanks

    i dont like the cajun line myself. It seemed weaker than my other lines and i could not see it at all in low light

    I do like cajun leader material. Academy had spools on sale for $.88 and I bought a spool of 40 lb and one of 50lb. Its great stuff.

    Cajun is OK but since I started using Sufix Seige I'll never ever go back.It will not coil up, you can saw it on stumps and it still want break easy.Instead of losing rigs now I just pull parts of the trees up with me, I almost got enough wood to build a house now.:big_smile:

    Thats why I love my white rods I don't need to see the line and they are easy to see with low light as well.:big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile:

    That's why I wrap reflective tape around the rod tips of my dark colored rods. The white shows up like no one's business.

    I dont use mono on any of my cat rigs but I do use the red on my ultra light bait catching rod. Been happy with it.

    my complaint on the red is tying a rig on after dark. I use clickers most of the time so dont need to see line or rod really.

    I'm with you, it don't make sense to me either. If they can't see one, how could they see the other:confused2:

    It is good line tough. I've found it to be about as tough as the Big Game Trilene, but you can't see it in low light or dark with a lantern if you're loose line fishing. You deffinitely better be using the bait alarm unless you're holding your rod all the time.

    I've tried the 4 and 6 pound test on my UL spinning reels for trout fishing. All it did was twist up and foul up the reel. Am I the only one that can "backlash" a spinning reel?:roll_eyes: :eek:oooh: :angry:

    If you're not concerned about watching your line for the bite, you can't go wrong with it.:boss:

    I use Cajun 30# and 40#, AND 8# Red Cast on my drop weights for a 3-way rig. Only thing that's failed me so far is my tied knots, no fault with the line at all.
