    I use 12lb Raven...still pretty thin but strong. I'd use 14 if I could find it...

    I've been very pleased with the performance of the Sufix Seige as well, makes a nice managable mian-line. A wee bit heavier strengths for out here........running 17lb on my 'finesse' rig, and 20lb on heavier C Pin. I would try the 8lb or 10lb for GL Steel.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I've spooled up with Sufix Clear 8lb and we'll see how it handles the southern fish tomorrow. Hopefully this rain will bring them up.

    I just started using Yozuri high vis this year and love it so far. For those of you who have used it, how is it in cold conditions?

    I would tend to disagree Steve, I loved using Ironsilk the past few years but in the 6lb test.

    The 8lb test becomes way to stiff in the cold months.


    Ive moved on though and am now using Suffix 8lb siege and its been great!

    I use Fireline 6lb crystal. It is great for making those marathon casts out on the Maitland. A much gentler hookset is required. There is very little stretch in the line so it reacts quickly. I always use one swival above and below my shotline to reduce twisting, this seems to work well.

    Have done the old school brands, including Raven but that was in the ghey pink. Didn't look right on the reel I was using at the time. It had been Technium for the longest while, then a brief moment with Suffix and I guess I am regressing now........ Iron Silk. My good friend found a spool of the "Solar Mint" color. I put it on recently and now my float reel looks like a fly reel. All used in the 10lb line rating.

    Stiff is good, yes?

    Depends on what you like stiff GT:P

    I mean the line has poor properties in the winter

    I think whatever you feel comfortable with is the best mainline.

    I've been using Drennan 8lb Specialist Super Mono this year and am very pleased with it. It would be nice if it was a wee bit cheaper though!

    Suffix Seige in 10lb for me. Low memory, decent casting abilities without loading up the shot.

    I had gamma 8lb on my float and wasn't overly impressed. I was always losing floats even with 4lb leaderline. Also found it hard to see in the air. Going to try a high vis line next. Any suggestions on which one to use?
