    Line-Knot testing machine

    Very clever Mr.Zimezoom. A well thought out solution. If a problem ever develops with line breaking at the gizmo an increase in the diameter will most likely resolve the issue. Cubeye: Am thinking you are correct hopefully zimezoom will concur.

    Hey guys, don't usually respond to this sort of self inflicted disaster. Yes he took a swing and struck out but rest assured his next turn at bat will be successful. But mistakes are valuable and the only people who don't make mistakes are those lazy asses who do nothing!! Walt

    Braid snapping test

    Excellent explanation by lazyfisherman above and MyNomad below. My best advice for the DoDo is for him to convert to a spinning reel. Or completely eliminate the spectra and switch to all Mono, P-Line is a good choice. You don't need spectra for fresh water fishing.
