I guess most of that was about abrasion, yes it is subject to abrasion especially somewhere as rocky as Malta, but it is great to use, you feel every beat of the lure as it moves, & the take is more positive because you dont have the stretch in the line that you have with monofilament.
I find that even fishing on sandy beaches you get abrasion on the end of the line, so I cut ~5mts off every time I go, then I wind it onto a spare spool & use the other end that isn't abraded, once you have used it you wont want to go back to mono!

braid is better due to its sensitivity and lack of sping so you can hook a fish much easier

I will try it then what do you think if I put 0.20? I love spinning although I never managed to take any other fish than cudas home.

hey guys, my experience with braided and spinning is the following. Just as a reminder i dont have much time to do spinning right (in the morning and sunset), and most of the time when i get a chance to go fishing i cast two rods for bottom and then spin too. So its not organized  Undecided but anyway.

Re braided, there is spiderwire that has excellent breaking strenght. And also powerpro. However you dont find them in Malta (or i dont know from where) and when I tried getting them of ebay I got a little screwed cause the box was of a .18 but then the line was a .40. Howver you can check the specs out for these lines. Quite impressive.

With braid, as you aplty said, its best to get a good mono as a first layer, then put the braid on it. Yet watch out that the mono is not too thick cause then the knot with a thinner braid is not strong and if a fish takes a lot of drag out (which is quite unlikely, but you never know) it gets problematic. Yet this also depends on the size of the spool. I use a shimano 2500 (the one with the fighting drag) and filled it with a .16braid and was quite ok. But watch out for the casts cause if its not a good braid it gets knotted.

Re the end bit, try get a florocarbon or floro coated line. Once again dont use a very thick line with a thin braid cause the knot gets difficult to do and will not be strong. With the .16, the max floro thinckness i used is a .30. Once you tie the florocarbon to the braid reel couple of rounds until you get one or two layers of the reel all florocarbon. once you do that you are sorted and can attach the lures to it.

Wanted to ask, do you use swivels at the end to attach the lures? I used to use the rapala ones but i think a direct knot is better. With the above set up I had landed a nice barracuda and lifted it quite a little since i was fishing off rocks. Yet the rod I use is a heavy spinning one, hence the rod could take it. With respect to the reel, what do you think of the importance of the ratio. The pros say it has to be a 5:1 but i never got the hand of how it works.

By the way, when the barras are small lets not all forget to try some catch and release  Wink

Jean is there a special knot to make to tie normal line to braided or the one we use for normal line?

I usually use the attached knot for both the shock leader when surf casting and the leader for spinning. I got it from the web site 2anglers.it. Basically its quite a complex not yet very good. However i usually prepare it when at home with the pc infront of me hehe  Roll Eyes

Otherwise i use the normal one. I dont know the name but its the one were you make a loop around the other line, turn the end piece for aroun 5 - 7 times and pull slightly. Then you repeat for the other line. Yet watch out with the knots, cause the braid can burn out the nylon, hence reducing the strength and also creating those uncomfy curls. Moreover, I have the personal fixation that if its a florocoated (not a totally flouorocarbon line) that i remove the coating. will try and either take pics or find some lic of the other one. (yet its the one similar to the hook that you make a loop, turn around the leg of the hook and pass around the loop.
