I use Daiwa sensor for my mainline, but it tends to coil up a bit, what do you use for your mainline? I want to try something else and am not bothered about price, I just want some good gear for good old fashioned course fishing. What do you recommend? Also hooklengths - the ready made up variety?

I have the korum stuff on my reels for feeder, bayer or silstar for light float work and maxima for heavy stuff.
hook lengths are silstar or shimano silk shock

ultima power plus, best mainline i have used. virtually no memory, thin diameter for it's breaking strain & very strong, have a lot of faith in it.

i dont use hooks to nylon but my mate does and he swears by the fox & drennan ones as they are the best tied, prefer to tie my own personally.

On my Reels i tend to use Maxima Chameleon although i also have berkley something on my other reel (its a white one)

I always use hooks to nylon my knots are very limited up to now. I use the mustad hooks to nylon in all their varieties and i have some hair rigs pre-tied from korum but not used these yet

Graham are you putting it on correctly? I use sensor on some of my reels and have never had any problems with it coiling up
