It makes sense when you realise the maxima is thicker and stronger than stated and the middy and any other pre-stretched hooklength line is not normally as strong as stated and the hooklength, been so much shorter has a lot less stretch! I may use 5lb reel line, 12lb hooklength on the method, as do many others!
right now that makes sense wasn't saying your wrong Nathan was just saying that the strength of the line is normally the other way round ie:stronger main line and weaker bottoms.but as you say if its more forgiving then it makes sense to have a finer hooklength.
