    I use 6 & 8lb Daiwa Sensor for bog-standard Method Feeder stuff and 15lb Hypersensor for pike, not much wrong with it IMO. Seems to me to be an industry standard sort of thing.

    I am a paid up member of the parcel twine brigade. Funny thing it as never stopped me catching fish.

    Wine cork for a float and bent pin for a hook?

    Here's a pretty comprehensive breakdown on many well known lines in respect of diameter (stated/actual) and strength (stated/actual) CLICK HERE
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Had a glance at that table - interesting

    Pro Gold 8lb 0.27 mm breaks at 11.38lb
    Pro Gold 10lb 0.29mm breaks at 11.88lb

    The extra 0.02 mm gets you a mere half pound extra in bs.

    Sensor 6lb 0.22mm breaks at 8.5lb
    Sensor 8lb 0.25mm breaks at 10.7 lb

    An extra 0.03mm gets you an extra 2.2lbs in bs

    Can I ask what people think is going on ( without triggering another round of the much loved Sensor is ****/no it isn't panto)? Is it to do with these lines, or more generally to do with the way bs changes in proportion to diameter. It seems odd that the steps up seem so different.

    Interesting to see the most are out on their stated diameter and breaking strains.
    Looked at some line yesterday and the spool stated average breaking strain and diameter of the line I
    have never noticed before. I suppose it gets round the problem of over or understating the line.

    I'm trying to get Tigger back Skip and comments like that about an excellent line beloved by many and by Tigger in particular is unlikely to do so.
