Nano Fil
« on: March 02, 2014, 10:51:17 AM »

I've been thinking ....... which is scary.

I have a couple of bait rods that have smaller reels, mostly 2,000 series. I usually tie on a small length of 6 or 8 lb test mono backing, then the rest is filled with 20lb braid with a bite leader. Most of the time these rods bring in a lot of bait and salt water "pan fish", but then ...... I have been spooled a few times to the point that the backing line snaps. You can't control what is going to hit your line in the salt.

I'm trying to decide if the cost of filling the spools with the extra length of Nono Fil, is justifiable. I know that these fish are catchable, its just that there isn't enough line on the reel to tire them out before they hit the end.

Also if it would hold up to shell and barnacles. I get cut off once in a while with braid, but usually am able to bring the fish in with the bite leader getting the brunt of the abrasion.

I usually don't back my reels, my just enough mono to keep the braid from slipping, it is either that or I will have to retire these bait rods and start using something a little more substantial.

i back fill with mono because my spools just take to much braid. that being said i still like to put a flurocarbon leader on my line especially when working in wood, rocks and shells

I back fill all reels with Cajun Red mono (usually 10#).
