Tasline 80lb allegedly advertised at rated over 120lb

I reckon it's actually much stronger... very very hard to break.

Saw an independant test somewhere result showing more like 160lb.

Really, really good. best part - it's "thinner" by actual breaking strain, so less drag in water.

Yes - more expensive - but really good.

Had some big sharks on Exxy couple of years ago and really struggled to break the line.

 Tasline is aussie owned and almost aussie made too. The braiding machines have been installed and are going through final commissioning. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

 I have the reel spooling gear from Busted Fishing which is well priced for what you get and it means that when you hear things like "just reverse your braid" or "take the braid off and make sure the spool isn't getting corroded underneath" or "mate can you help me spool up" you have nothing to fear.   It's the best.
