I am spoiling my reels for the season. I have used Stren MagnaThin for many years. I had issues with it last season and it seems like it is being phased out. What does everyone recommend for 4lb., 6lb. And 8lb. Monofilament? I liked the thinner diameter of the MagnaThin. Had great luck with Suffix ice line. What is the best? Not interested in braid.

Trilene XL or XT.

IMO guys spend way too much on line, especially braid. But to each their own.

We spend too much on everything fishing but you can't take it with you!I've noticed all the "cheaper mono" changed about 6to8 years ago. Some Trilene was backward, (spins when loading a spinning reel.)Had to flip spool over to the other side when loading. Some of the Magna was shredded, brought back to store exchanged to find two of the three replacement spools were the same.I still like Trilene and Stren but for some trolling getting into some super line(s).It is expensive but what the h!!! it's just money? Go fish have fun!c63

I run Sufix on everything. 832 braid on my jig/snap jig rod with Sufix Invisiline Fluorocarbon for a leader. Last year I ran Siege on my rigging rods which I wasn't a big fan of. Going to try the new Advance mono for those this year.

Braid is initially more expensive, but I can get 3 or four years on it usually. Inspect after every year, if it shows wear I will flip it over on the spool by removing it up to the backer.

Give a man a fish and he'll have a meal.
Teach a man to fish and he'll spend the families grocery money on bait, tackle, rods, reels, electronics, boats and trips to Canada!
