It is a little noisier and somewhat rough textured but in terms of performance it can't be faulted.


Thanks , bit too late for now, but ill keep it in mind for next time.

what sort of mono line do you guys recomend


Make sure your brain doesnt over load when you cach all the fish on shimano gear lol

Otherwise good buy welcome to the team

I wouldnt go below 15lb just because of bycatch of a gummy or a big snapper or ray

I would second that. All our setup's are 15lb minimum and we are yet to (crosses fingers) break a line.

12-15lb. You're only fishing the Gay bay. There's no tidal influence to aid rays, and most gummys are small. Save the kairiki braid for squid/surf spinning/whatever

You could use them for pinkies rods at westenport where i fish. 20 lb would be good.
I have a mate that has 15lb braid on light rod for westenport but i thinkits a touch light if you get a buy catch.
