Just got some FINS Original PRT 40# (9# mono Equiv Dia.) I was going to put on my Shimano Thunnus 6000 BaitRunner. Underneath that pk of braid lay 2- H20 Mettle's I got from Academy. What do U think? Too much as far as #age? Whats the heaviest # test braid U put on a BC reel?

I've run 35lb power pro on my 3500 baitrunner for years, I love it. 100lb on the tld 15/20's


How do you like the heavier Baitrunner? They are all twin drag right?

Andrew,

Braid is the only line to use on small baitcaster's. It cast's better, lasts longer, and the no memory aspect minimizes backlash.

I use 40#, or 50# on all my small baitcaster's. I prefer the heavier line because the lighter test line's tend to float.

float, wow, I haven't thought of that. I've always preferred the 8lb test braid from berkley on my small spinners, I like to be able to feel the fish's heartbeat...
I'm thinking the lighter line may be a backlasher's wet dream... where as the heaver stuff would flow off the spool easier?

on my spinners I like to spool it almost full with braid, then about 20-30' of andy 15#, you can keep the pink though..
The mono holds up better against shell and stuff.
