    Hollow splice diameter difference

    When splicing hollow braid to mono what are the limitations. I understand that at some point you cant fit thick mono into thinner hollow but what are the limits on the other end. If you wanted to put 20lb mono into 80 or 130lb hollow braid will it work. (extreme example)

    50:1 will be richer than 35:1. Does that make sense. Carb jets care about volume, the more oil in you gas the less gas trough the jet same amount of air = leaner. 50:1 sounds right, make sure your running the right plug.

    El Nino is warmer (1-2 deg.) than normal surface water temps at the equator in the Eastern Pacific. It usually makes the local water warmer also, the idea is warmer water brings more exotics. Dont plan on catching wahoo on the 302, but we could see a longer YFT, Dorado, Marlin seasons.

    Slower is more parabolic, faster is more exponential. I would not worry so much about power. Pick the line weight you intend to fish or more accurately the amount of drag you intend on using. remember that you loose leverage the further from you hands to where the line exits the rod.
