    Fluorocarbon - What Brand is Better to Tie Knots

    3-turn uni knot and a squeeze of water. Get some standard 50lb mono and practice before committing to the fluoro. Premier is a little softer but simplicity in knot choice is key.

    Berkley pro spec hollow core vs jb hollow core

    The 80W will take a lot of line. It's not a jigging reel so the question then becomes, how to set it up for the kite AND troll. Trolling with an 80W way back and lots of other boats around means, at least to me, a long 200-yard topshot. But that would not be good on the kite. the 80W is a...
