    No but for more casting distance you can't beat it. No way would I try to spool a reel and cast it with 100lb mono. I use a 10 foot rub leader of it. You need wire leaders also.

    Based on the weedballs we haul in that doesn't apply.

    Joshj123,
    Check you PM's I sent you a cheat sheet that will help you with alot of the info you need about setting up for S&R fishing. It's pretty much all I do. Shoot me any questions you may have but the Fish whisperer hands down is Coach. It was good fishing with you the other night Coach, had a good time despite wearing the stripe lol I'm going out tonight to give it a shot, water temp down to 68 its cooling off a bit should help. Tight lines to you all

    Hey Joshj123,
    I shot you a PM that will help answer alot of your questions plus a bunch of other info that will get you on the right track. S&R fishing is pretty much all I do. Around here the Fish Whisperer is Coach the man know his Fish. Wad great fishing with you Coach the other night even though I ended up wearing the stripe. I'm headed out tonight water temp coming down a couple degrees should help. I've got an extra conventional setup Joshj123 if your want to borrow it and try it out. Tight lines all
