    Re: Preston's line diameters

    Known this for some time. My local tackle dealer, who is also a mate, and I, tested the range of Reflo line and all were out by at least 0.02mm on the thick side. I seem to remember when I mentioned...

  5. Re: What can I do about an assortment of old unmarked line?

    I just bunch and tie it into a really tight ball, double-bag it tightly and make sure there’s no food in the bag to tempt seagulls, then bin it.

    Re: Companies like marukyu...

    Marukyu were a bit of a fad with those JPZ pellets. I’ve got some of their sticky micro pellets for Method feeders and they are just too sticky and make a right mess of your hands.
