i thing 30lb is more suitable for light/medium spinning whilst 50lb+ is either bait/heavy spinning........................i dont use braid for bait fishing but most deffo for the lures. i use 50lb incase i either get a good snag or fish(i wish Laughing )

Very Happy Well i do a lot of spinning and lure fishing, And both Live and Death (hahaha) baiting, But i am minimalist when it comes to carrying gear, So i only use 2 reels a year, Both bait runners, But i think the next time i get another 2 reels i will have to get a couple of spare spools Very Happy

I think Very Happy

That's on a multi though. I wouldn't go for Cortland Spectron on a fixed spool because it's too thick. If it's a multi, you can throw some very big lures with just the 50lb stuff.

Cortland is probably better suited to upper layer fishing too. It's diameter means your deep-diing, sinking and trolling lures won't go as deep as you perhaps want. For surface and sub-surface fishing, down to about 10 feet, it's the mutts nuts.

If it's a fixed spool, go for the PP because of the diameter.

what mono would you use for pike fishing?

15lb mono roughly 0.35mm nominal

0.35 dia braid is well power pro in 0.36 is 50lb

work the diameter out you need and buy it that way

daiwa is similar but i cant find a spool at the moment
power pro is .43mm in 80lb
and the whiplash in 80lb is stated as 0.24mm which is odd as its far thicker than all the others

having problems uploading the pic so ill get round to it tomorow

right just measured them with a thing with prongs on that measures tiny things lol

the penn came in at 0.52
daiwa 0.50
the spiderwire ready 0.9mm

This is a (digital) vernier caliper:



They don't look like noodles description to me: "this is a magnetic thing that swings two spikes together to measure soft things"

The G clamp looking thing is a micrometer:



I'm baffled as to what they are noodle going by what else you said: "big green sandpapery coated thing" scratch

a good buy
spider wire is a very sensitive line you will feel everything but i would recommed using soft action rods and a very loose clutch as there is zero stretch.
i have had the same spool of spider wire on my lure rods for almost 5 years it's a very resilient line very good for fishing over heavy snags.

Very Happy The main problem i have with this line is nearly always when casting, I use a very soft action rod, But it could be and probably is my own fault, Just to heavy handed, Very Happy

used spider wire braid for years, still got the same stuff on 5 years down the line and never had any problem at all.
I use 50lb for bait fishing, and 65lb on multi for lure.
thin braid in snaggy swims asking for trouble, dont go under 50lbs--- its only same dia as 12--15lb line

Sound advice has been given here, And i have just got hold of some un-named Braid from my mate in Ireland, It looks 50Lb and its very dark grey almost black, So i gave it a five minute soak and a scrubbing for another 2 minutes, After this it has gone patchy with white & brown showing, So i thought that looks allmost cammo of a kind, So i will give it a go to see what the results are,

i'm looking at braid to try when bait fishing, as ive always used mono,

just to try, looking at this stuff

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/500M-SPOOL-TALON-PE-BRAID-50LB-BREAKING-STRAIN-/290468003089?pt=UK_SportsLeisure_Fishing_Line_JN&hash=item43a13dfd11#ht_2590wt_922

anyone think that a decent price for that breaking strain and that amount?

there is more options here from the same seller,

as said looking at trying it out for bait fishing, i might no like it, i might do, i'm not going to get some straight away, as other matters come first, but after peoples views on it,
