A SECRET About Fishing LINE You Probably Don’t Know!

READ PINNED COMMENT DOWN BELOW

Understand that NOT all line is made equal! Line diameters vary because of the components to make them stronger, more abrasion resistant, provide more stretch, be more brittle, etc. Sufix 832 for example likely has a larger diameter at 10lb test because it incorporates a GORE Fiber woven into it to make it more water resistant so that it doesn’t absorb as much water. This likely increases the diameter and line size but adds various features to the line.

Also note that a smaller line of the same make (fluoro, braid, mono, etc) at the same diameter doesn’t necessarily make it “better.” Certain lines work better under certain conditions – Assassin is a better line for reaction baits, Sniper is a better all-around line, Shooter is better for flipping and pitching, etc.

Research your lines and choose the line that best fits your situation to help you put most fish in the boat. While line diameter is one characteristic, it is NOT the only feature to look at!

Great info as always Ben. I know that there has been several differences in braids pointed out by several YouTubers, but I didn’t realize that you could get smaller-yet-stronger like in your example.
I’ve been comparing different lines and their performance with deep cranks, and I have noticed that lines that are similar (both copo, same diameter) can have different depth capabilities and the only thing I can contribute it to is how smooth the line is. For example, my P-Line CXX is smoother than Izorline, which seems to have a certain coarseness to it straight from the spool. The P-Line is silky smooth and will get to the bottom much quicker it seems.

I fish deep crankbaits deeper than they are listed to go. I’ve done this for years by paying close attention to line diameter. For example I use PLine 100% Fluorocarbon to flip with because of it’s strength. However compare it to Seaguar Red label and there is a big difference in Line diameter. So when I’m fishing a 10xd in 35ft of water I move down to 8lb test on a super soft rod. It sounds crazy but it works. You can’t get Pline down that deep. Even when I throw swimbaits the drag coefficient of the line diameter as it come through the water creates more lift which mean I have to compensate with more weight or slower retrieve. What I’m saying is you’re spot on. hahaha

Well I like your vids,your to the point not trying to sell gimicy sponsor baits and when your on the water you do a good job breaking down the situation and explain to people that may not know or even realize how to read water conditions ,fish behavior, and how the weather season play a role ..a lot of guys have no clue they just grab that closed nose 33 with 25 # mono and sling a 1/2 oz spinnerbait all day in the middle of a lake 50′ deep and never catch a fish and just chalk it up to they aren’t biting.it’d be cool if you’d get feed back from guys saying hey you advise worked or why can’t I catch fish I think the more people feel there learning the more followers you’ll get……honestly iv seen you and your rig on the water a few times .I’d get with sign image and put a vinyls decal s of your website on your truck and boat ….after all its all about getting followers and building from there

Thanks for watching

Excellent under looked tip man!

i need some secrets about that floral hat…

Alex Rudd Fishing says:

I extrude my own Wurtzite Boron Nitrid diamond coated flurocarbon carbon. Stands out like a sore thumb in the water, but I caught a 100lb sturgeon on 6lb test. So yeah, screw your opinion!

Chad Paten says:

also guys key point your lines only as strong as your knot

Justin Sisavath says:

Have you ever had experience with kastking braid? I’m thinkin bout buying it since it’s so much cheaper than the big names and has great reviews

Bass Junkie says:

Thanks man!

motomikey13 says:

tech talk is always welcome brother…..keep it coming and tight lines. I’m trying to get started making fishing videos check out my Sunday smallies video let me know what you think.

iTz Fwizzy says:

where i am we mostly catch Yellowbelly and Murry cod with no problem with type of line or brand
so this topic of different line is irrelevant.

Nathan Grass says:

not all companies lines break at their stated breaking strains so the suffix might actually break at quite abit more than 10lb i know of certain companies 4lb breaking at 17lb, and it is actually as thick or thicker than other companies 20lb braid. The Japanese make the best braid in the world and have the best way to measure thickness PE rating.

Lance Gelnett says:

What fluorocarbon leader do u like best for smallmouth fishing in super clear river fishing?

Twig 'N' Timber Outdoors says:

Also a tip! If you want some of the best line to diameter ratios out there, look at fly fishing tippet! A bit more expensive, but it is so thin but strong! Orvis Super Strong (in like 3x-0x or even 20lb) is a solid choice

Yakker 1969 says:

This bloke here has done a heap of testing on line diameter and breaking strain. A 10lb line on some products actually breaks at say 18. It is a great guide to help you decide (it’s and Aussie website but still relevant worldwide)

Jeff Zabriskie says:

What your preferred floro? I only use floro as a leader. i cant decide which one to go with. only used whats at my local tackle shop but it really doesnt seem to be all that good of a product.
