    bluecatnut,
    No haven't tried it yet. I just got in a neon 80lb. test 3000' roll myself. I plan to spool a couple of Penn 330gti's on Hagan 6'6" double pulley heavy duty rods. Gonna pull in the big cats and the log they hid under...lol I will let you know how it holds up.

    I was hoping to but the way it looks, I am already going to be out of town too much in Feb. (2 tournaments - Florida - S. Carolina). Hopefully I will make it down that way sometime this year.

    I did one this past summer. I didn't do very well but really enjoyed it.

    Dusty where did you get that 3000yd spool? Might check something like that for my bigger poles.

    I just ordered a 3000 yard spool of 80 lb test magnaflex off of E-Bay so I can spool my new 12/0 Penn Senator. Magnaflex 80lb test seems to be stronger than Big Game 80 lb test. It stretches a little more than Big Game and I guess that is the reason that it seems to be stronger. I don't know how the abrasion resistance will be on the line and I definitely am going to find out come spring.

    I buy mine form Lucerne Tackle's E-Bay store. 3000 yds of 80lb Magnaflex cost me $60 including shipping. I ordered it on Sunday night and it was on my front steps when I came home this afternoon. I have no affiliation except as a satisfied customer. Lucerne Tackle.

    I used Stren Magnaflex 30# the whole 2005 season and was very pleased with it. I used the yellow color which was really helpful after dark. I used clear line for my leader. I bought it also from Lucerne.
