    Default Fluorocarbon help please.

    Are there any brands of fluorocarbon lines that are notably stiffer than others?

    Only one I've encountered that struck me as wiry was Sakuma. I have some 3.5lb. I could send you a few meters if the gauge is right for you, 0.152mm. PM me if you want some.

    Thanks Mike
    I’ve ordered some stiff boom leader off the bay which may or may not do the job, we will see.

    The Amnesia I've got is so stiff it reminds me of a cable tie. I don't use it because it's so stiff even for seafishing. Let me know if you want it by the 25th July and I'll bring it back. If you have a Penn Battle 2 5000 reel i have a spare spool you can have. I bought it for my 4000 being a dope.
