Over the weekend of fishing I have noticed that the line I am using on my pole for lure fishing the spiderline super mono 17lb broke far easier than I thought it should, it casts great. So last night I picked up 675yd spool of berkley big game clear steel line. Comparing the strength of the two by tying each off and covering my hand with a small towel and wrapping the line around that and pulling like crazy the 17lb super mono broke far easier than the 14lb berkley line. So I respooled the small spincast with the berkley line and also put it on my new baitcaster pole. Now the berkley line withstood alot more pressure than the 17lb which surprised me. Does each company rate their line in a different way? Now the braid line from spiderline is excellent. but no more of the supermono for me. Well see how the berkley line holds up in the real world this weekend.
