LOL. The stuff we call 12lb breaks at 20.6, and IS the PE 0.6purple5ive wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 8:16 amStill too heavy for the finesse reels I have. I need the ability to get a good casting distance when using 3gm lures and such, so that's why I have hesitated so far.DougieK wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:53 amThe 12lb Tas will cut it for almost every fish you're ever going to hook. I just use the super heavy stuff so when I do hook my third fish of a lifetime for the week I might actually stand a chance of landing it. Unless you're kingfishing there isn't much going on in VIC that's going to need anymore.
I can run them on my all purpose reel and see how it goes.
What's the pe rating 0.6?
If so can do the other reels I'd say. As i have 6lb on them and should be very similar.
Seriously, try it and see if you like it. When I first bought my little 903 assasin and a new spool of 12lb on my bio 5, I cast a busted 45 clean across port campbell harbour and into the wall on the other side. Not with specialised casting gear, just a normal, although expensive, 9 foot salmon rod.
