Cal,

I did have some bird nest, well lets be truthful, maybe a few eagle nest, but it wasn't all the lines fault.....I was also setting up the new reels with the line. I also think that I put a little to much line on the reels too. After I had taken off some 15-25 yds I never had another problem with it.
You sure can see it too, its a bright amber glow and real easy to pick up on coming out of the water.....
I tried the 12 & 14 test line, I think that I will order some 17 or 20 today and see how that throws too.

I picked up the 17, 10 and 8 pound test.  should take me through all the ranges I'll need.  Got 30 lb for throwing the big swim baits but its spiderline, thinking of using the 50 lb gorilla braid so it doesn't break off throwing the big baits

I got some of the 17 and used it on Cross this Sunday. I thought it did ok. Did not get a chance to fight any fish with it, but I had no problems pitching it. Not a single bird nest and I hit a dock or two tring to get way under them.

Finally tried the new line....gotta love it.  Really works as advertised.  It dosne't hold uup well if you pull the knot too fast or don't lubricate it first.  Tends to break

  • Let's go fishin' !
I went to the Bassmaster University this weekend and Larry Nixon was talking about that Trasition.  He really likes it, but he warned about using it for casting.  It is just like flourocarbon in that it pitches like a dream; sinks like a rock; doesn't cast well; hard to tie knots in; very strong, but will break if it gets a kink (like from a bird's nest or a bad knot).  He really likes it for pitching becuase the line sinks, and that gives it excellent feel.  He said it is susceptable to backlashes when casted which that will weaken the line.  I am planning on trying it on my soft plastics rod.

I only had some minor backlashes, nothing that couldn't be solved with one or two tries.
