I see it on sale (pretty good price) and was considering spooling up a couple reels with 80lb hollow. If anyone has used it I would like some input on casting and connections using it.

Thanks

I also bought the large spool on sale and have no complaints.

Turners. Bulk 10% off. Beyond that the hollow is $10 less a 100 yds than another store I frequent.

I switched over most of my gear to it this year and so far like it.
I notice the threads are much more consistent than Hollow Ace (when running needles through it)

For myself, I have had trouble making a loop with it for attaching wind-on leaders.

Due to the tight weave It can be difficult to get the reverse needle through.
When I run into this. I run a small loop needle through first to open up and relax the braid, then the latch is a breeze.

Thanks Carl. Another plus (I don't know if it's true but) the 50lb hollow broke at 90lb! I am going to fill my Accurate 500N with it for a nub connection.
