Copolymer Line?
« on: August 04, 2019, 11:43:28 AM »

Im new to the bigger swimbaits. I just purchased a Dobyns Fury FR 795SB. I will be throwing 168 swavers, hud 68 and 8" magdrafts with it to start.

My question is.
Would I be better starting with a Copolymer Line? Since it seems to be a good compromise between floro and mono.


Thanx for any input.

You might want to start with a .017 or .020 line. This way, if you mess up, it won't snap like braid may, and send your lure sailing if you mess up a cast.

I use 20lb copolymer for my swimbaits PLine CXX and love it. Baits range in the 2-6oz range. I do have a spare Tatula 200 spooled up with 20lb Abrazix but tend to use copolymer with my baits as I tend to throw mostly treble hook baits. Just works for me I guess.

When you start talking ounces in casting you should think about using a shock leader from the reel to the lure. The extra stretch found in many copolomer lines fills the bill in eliminating the sudden snap that happens when casting especially heavy weights.

The same safety reasons are used when surf fishing and hurling heavy "Boulders" which can break free at any part of the cast.

I have the same rod and use 20lb. flouro but there's no reason copoly wouldn't work.
