  6. Thanks for the answers Crucian, helpful as usual. And sorry got hijacking your post Rockwell.
  7. I see, so material takes precedence over diameter in the same kg range. In my example, fluoro would be preferred when fishing for cautious fish, even though it's much thicker. Going back to my other question, which I think I may not have been clear enough: In the shop there are some lines in their own category called "Leader materials" and come in rolls of lengths of 15-20m. Do these lines have any specific characteristics that make them more suitable for making into leaders than lines from the "Lines" category (the usual ones of 100m, 150m, 350m etc).
  8. I understand that material is considered as well, I was trying to figure how important it is compared to diameter. Take two lines from the store, the brand is less important: One is fluoro, 0.45mm diameter and 12.3kg load Second one is Braid, 0.18mm diameter and 12.2kg load Given that they have almost the same load capacity, which one has the least scare factor. The "invisible" fluoro or the much thinner braid?
  9. Any tips on how to release a telescopic rod? Without the reel to take the impact, I keep snapping the line..

  11. I think what Rockwell6 is asking (and what I would like to find out as well) is: what's the difference between a line from the Leader material category (like US Braid Red Camo for example) and a regular line of the same characteristics (material, diameter, strength). Are they less visible to the fish? Your answer (and the FAQ) points out that leader diameter is actually the main deterring factor for the fish, which makes braid preferable in almost all cases as it's thinner. But what about fluoro, which is described as "invisible in the water" and is so popular among players? Is theres any use for fluorocarbon leaders outside of hinged or chod rigs where a stiff leader is needed?

  13. You can buy swivels from Rig Components -> Leaders -> Accessories. Leaders have no quality and need no skill. If you have the tool, the line and the swivels you're ready to go.
