At the suggestion of various members and given the magazines will run a mile from criticising a piece of kit, here is your chance to tell us what you really think about a rod, reel, line, lure... keep it legal please!

The Europaen Fishing Tackle Trade Association are getting involved.

I suppose it doesn't address of forgeries....There is little substitute from buying form your local dealer (if the price is fair!)

I also had the same question several months ago! I bought the SpidreWire UltraCast 20lb Braid .24mm on thick side.
Keep getting wind knots in it and casting same distance as mono!

So I done some research and it seems thinner Braid will cast light lures further. I bought 20lb Berkley Whiplash.
What can i say. Far superior braid. 0.06mm thickness. Ultra Thin! I can literally cast lures twice as far with this braid and no
wind knots!
