    Trilene big game any color or size
    Suffix for my leaders

    Recently I had trilene big cat put on a new reel i bought down at cabela's:wink: :wink:

    It seems really good! I got the hi vis green I got 330 for alittle under 6. I'll just use the rest for leaders on smaller reels:smile2: :smile2: :smile2: :smile2:

    Berkley Big Game-Solar Green, 25-30lb for Cats, 15lb for other fish.

    Or Suffix in the same order as above.

    For leader, any 50-80lb Mono or Floro.

    I like Big Game and Suffix best mostly for it's toughness, but it also cast great and I've not found any negative things about eithier one of them yet. I like the solar green colors, or yellow in Suffix, because it's easy to see and helps me keep track of my lines better.

    Cajun Lightnin' - red 8-30#/ extremely abrasion resistant and strong, disappears underwater Boaters' World Extreme - hi vis yellow/ extremely flexible but tough line that does not get brittle for two or three years - maintains strength Smallest leader material 30# largest 80# all Cajun Lightnin' - never failed for the last three years

    I Really Like The Sufix For Both Fresh & Saltwater. Since There Are Many Members Talking Up The Cajun Red Line, I Just Bought a Spool & Im Going To Put It On My Spinner As Soon As I Get It Back From The Repair Shop.

    If It Works As Good As Many Have Mentioned, I'll Be Happy :smile2: ,Elliot

    I use The Spider Wire Braid "original", and the Spider wire "Stealth". I normally use 50LB in the Stealth, and 30-40 in the original, I love this line, and I like it so much that I have considered writing them a letter to tell them what a great product this is. If there is a problem with the Spider Wire it is cost, it normally runs between 12-20 bucks a reel. And I don't know about you guys but I change my line after every big fish......Braided or not.

    I use Berkley Big Game, 20 lb. test. I think that 20 lb. test is high as you need to go, if you know how to use your drag.

    Braid would be PowerPro 65/16 because it's strong and castable.

    Mono would be Maxima Ultra Green by far the best line I have ever used short memory and very strong very good casting ability. If you can find this line try it you wont go back. cats go 20-30 depends on your reel for capacity.
