Daiwa Sensor Mono Line?

Postby Teegerstk » Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:42 pm

Saw this on an Irish online store, thinking of getting it in 12lb/0.33mm as I need a new mainline, I've had 15lb Berkley Mono on for about 10 months and it has done its job well, but I want to try a lighter line such as 12lb for cleaner sandy beaches. Has anyone tried this and is it worth it? Pretty cheap price so I'm not too sure.
Thanks

Daiwa Sensor line is good value and I have used it in a variety of strengths, 12lb for pike fishing and spinning for mackerel, 15lb for beachcasting multipliers and 35lb on shark reels. Never had any complaints though it is slightly thicker than more expensive brands for the same b.s.

Thanks for the reply JW
I think I'll go with it, although is 12lb advisable for beaches or should I just get 15lb?
Daiwa tournament mono also looks good, not as thick as the sensor!

15lb is regarded as the standard beach casting b.s., I have occasionally used 12lb on clean beaches,where flatties are the usual fare, when fishing light e.g. 2/3 oz leads. Unless you have a reel specifically for 12lb lightweight fishing, I would stick to the 15. I don't imagine the marginally thinner 12 would give that much extra casting distance.

Thanks for the replies lads, I still have a lot to learn!
I think I'll go for the tournament, line quality is everything it seems.
