nice jizz marks bruh!

you can get more line on there, but that looks of for now bar those funny bumps in there. its probably the join between the braid and mono backing.
id go to a park and have a few cats with a small sinker attached and see if things are all working well.
then go fishing with it.

Christ, reading this I can understand why I went back to mono. I'm with you Denis. Just use mono and spend the time and money saved on catching fish.

The aim for all of us here is to move forward in fishing not backwards..

Mono is not going backwards,Just because braid is new it doesnt make it better
IMono carnt be that bad, ive caught over 1300 Ting in the last 12 months and probably 150 squid with mono
Mono is the same as Apollo 5 that went to the Moon 50 years ago-Guess what no one in the world now has a unit that can put a person on the moon -Older is sometimes better-Like ME
In the bin with that evil braid muck

Sounds dumb but I use Berkeley Nanofil line - a good compromise between mono and braid. Casts very well, sensitive enough to feel squid attacking jigs.

No one has gone back because the moon landing was fake.. Just like the allegations that mono is better than braid ;)

If nothing easy is worthwhile, LBG in Victoria is the most worthwhile thing of all time.
