This is a fantastic main line with a well-earned reputation, but makes an exceptional line for spodding.

The 20lb version has the diameter of just 4lb monofilament, making it superb for casting long distances. It floats, which means you can be in direct contact with your spod at just the flick of a rod, but you’ll need to use a shockleader and a fingerstall.

The one drawback of such a fine braid is the lack of abrasion resistance. It’s not an issue when spodding, but bear it in mind if you are using it for fishing.
