I've Recently just bought a new reel and can't decide which line to use? I'm thinking maxima but someone recently mentioned it's a poor line, I disagree but would like some feedback on your thoughts?

It's for method and bomb. Thanks. [8D]

be prepared for many different answers! what do you currently use? line preference is a personal choice, so whatever you have faith in, stick to it. good old maxima for me.

I used to use maxima for everything but now only use it for float fishing, prefer shimano technium or daiwa tournament st for feeder, casts more accurately because of less stretch and is abrasion ressistant.

Personal choice but I find daiwa tourny st excellent and it's all I use on reels for commercials now. 5lb for pellet wag, 6lb and 8lb for feeder/bomb.

How does ST rate as a sinking line? Compared say to sensor, maxima, Technium or Supplex? (For reference, I think Maxima and Technium are good sinking lines, Sensor feels neutral and Supplex is floaty).

Thanks

Someone commented recently on Grauvell Teklon Gold low diameter, I used this line for seafishing, especially beach casting and it's only recently that I've found out they are producing it in lower diameters, worth a look in my opinion.

it sinks but that makes no odds on the method or bomb. Just stick the tip underwater and bury the line

Thanks Kirtons. I think that the sinking quality of a line does make a difference when fishing the lead / feeder - a sinking line buries more readily, which minimises the risk of moving a lighter bomb or feeder from where it lands.

More of an issue over moderate to long distances I suppose.

It doesn't sink well but I use it for carp fishing and rivers mainly so doesn't matter. The Technium is better but more expensive.
