    Power pro spectra or Jerry Brown?

    Flouro leader or monofiliment for San Diego tuna?

    I started using the Seaguar Threadlock 16 carrier last year and really like it.
    Seems much more uniform and consistent than PP.

    However, I have not tried the JB, which I know has a very strong following in the LR community, and that says a lot.

    Jerry Brown hollow. As far as leader goes I only fish 14-16 day trips a few times a year. I only use Seaguar Premier Flouro leader.

    Have you checked this out for independent testing?
    Jb hollow looks pretty good to me.
    He hasn't tested every brand available.... But the list is probably pretty close.

    IMO a line should not break at more than 10 percent over the listed breaking strength!Tom
