smaller diameter line
« on: March 26, 2006, 09:44:39 AM »

What is the smallest mono line do you have on your baitcasters?  :help: I was thinking of putting 8 lb excel mono on my curado 200 b sf I have 10 lb on it now I throw small crankbaits on it.

8 lb test should be good anywhere as long as you dont plan on throwin it into loggy areas. Itll hold a gooden ive caught a 4 lber on my light finesse spinning reel and I have 6 lb on it.

Don't forget you have to compensate for the small diameter....the
Crankbaits will run a little deeper....that 8lb should hold a bass...I
tried it but to many rocks..you don't want to go that small in rocks
unless the line is really abrasive........

I used 4lb test last year on table rock and caught a couple well over 8. Had to use the light line to get them to bite on a hair jig. Man talk about a new experiance and some kind of nerve wracking.

I do not have a baitcaster, but have four pound test on my pinnacle reel, pretty cool fighting a 2 pound trout against a current with it  8)

When using line on my baitcaster...I try to stay with the reels recommendations...if the reel says 12lb test..... I try not to stray to far away on line size maybe the next size  up or the next size down
never 4-6 sizes up or down........if the reel says 12lb that is the line that the reel works best with.........anything less or more you suffer poor reel performance.........

8lb is as small as I go. That includes on my dropshot rods.
