For albies it probably doesn't matter, breaks usually occur due to sharks or frayed line in my experience there. On 30# test it was statistically the same as sdj, doubled eye improved clinch, etc. A quick consistent tied knot is probably more important for albies here though.
Thanks. I'd like to test 25#, 40#, 50# and 60# mono, but I only have a spring scale. I would guess that this has been done, though. I'll snoop around and post up if I find anything interesting. I don't use fluorocarbon.
TEAM 50 WIDE- We don't reel fish in more than once.

Single main, no kicker.
