    Ande line is the current mono I use on my baitcasters. I have used it for several years and have no problems with it and will continue to use it. It costs a little more, but the stretch is consistent and breaking point is consistent.

    I run a lot of premium salt water ande and really like it. Even on the poles I have 65 lb. and 100 lb. power pro I use 50 lb. and 80 lb. clear ande for leaders. For anyone that wants to stick with mono I would strongly recomend it for any kind of reel in any lb. test. The envy green is high vis and I have it in 30 lb. on some of my reels.

    I'm not an expert, but just last night I had a bad experience with it. I was using it for a leader, 50#. The very first hang up. it was damaged really bad. The rest of my rods had Berkly big Game and went through the same conditions and preformed to a higher standard. Same line weight. I have always wanted to try it , but wont now. I'm sure it cast better, but I don't think it is as abrasion resistant.

    Jack, the fact that you got your leader and rig back from being hung to give it an inspection is a pretty good testamonial for ande line. Theres no telling what it was rubbing and hung on. Like any line you use you will have to inspect it and change as needed.

    As far as casting I wouldn't recomend going over 30 lb. test for the main line on an abu 6000 or 6500 or equivalent. 40 lb. will cast well on an abu 7000 or equivalent. I have not had any problems with using 40 lb., 50 lb. or 80 lb. ande for leaders. It is very abrasion resistant, ties strong knots and will put fish in the boat:big_smile:.

    I've used Ande Premium quite a bit and I've never had any issues with it at all. I've used 12lb-50lb test on various casting reels. It's always worked at.

    Bassmassey uses Ande exclusively and has brought fish ashore. He really thinks a lot of this line, he may own some stock somewhere :wink:. As far as posting, please I enjoy the questions and the answers they generate. One thing about fisher (persons) if they ain't fishing, they're talking about it.

    I live on the coast of Monterey Bay and have used Ande Premium for many years. It is always been a saltwater staple even for Baja long range trips. I use 30lb pink Ande for catfish leader exclusively. Remember to use the cheap Premium and not the tournament.

    How does it compare Big Game in price and performance. I'm using Big Game on my rod and it is awesome. Never used Ande but I have heard good things.

    why not use 1/4 inch steel cable. I think that loosing a catfish because a line breaks is a terrible feeling and major let down, but at some point you have to leave some advantage to the catfish. Hunting with a semi-automatic, not sporting. Fishing with deep saltwater gear for catfish, not sporting. Sure the hunt is the same, but just hauling a big one in leaves something lacking. This is just my opinion and you will hear others that disagree. As far as quality, it is hard to beat any of the Ande line. Good hunting.:wink:
