Terry Eustace Pro Gold. I love it. you can get 1000m spools for around the 18 mark.

Maxima? There's another one I have been using lately in a bright blue box. The line looks almost blue on the spool, quite impressed with it. Costs around 7 for 100 metres

If you don't want to spend money on a bulk spool just for the sake of it you could buy a cheap bulk spool of low diameter line to fill your spool out a bit.

I have been asking questions about line and was advised to use Berkley they do different strengths the one I have was 330yds cost me 8, if you put it on right its a good line.

I`ll stick with the sf line because it has low diameter,low memory and low stretch[:D].And at what should be 3.99 a spool for 200mtrs,and will obviously be sold at 2.50,it is absolutely brilliant.[;)][:D]

It is speciality filaments.[;)]
They make line for certain companies who then put there own logo on it and sell it at a massive price.[:0]
The cheapest way to buy anything,is to buy it from the closest and purist point.ie...the manufacturer or the wholesaler[:D]

i only use preston line on my reels and pole fishing, use pro for hooklengths on fine rigs

use a thick backing line on deep spools or use the free line you get on mags etc!

For years I used some bulk spools of cheap german line from Veals which I bought in the late 70's. I found it great, but it's mostly run out and they only seem to do sea fishing stuff now.

To replace it I bought a pile of Mullarkey's cheap bulk spools, but tonight I found the thicknesses of the different strains to be rather odd. I have used 4lbs, 6lbs and 8 lbs and 12 lbs so far. The 4 and the 8 seem about right, but the 6 and most definitely the 12 seem far too thick for their breaking strains. I've also got 2lbs and 3lbs, but haven't checked them out yet.

I was going to use the 12 for my two new carp reels, but changed my mind as it was so thick and used it for backing instead. On top of it I put on some 10lbs Berkley Triline Big Game ultra clear which I find absolutely first class. I gonna nip and get a spool of 12lb in the same stuff tomorrow. Don't know if they do anything lighter than 8lbs though!

Just for those of you who don`t know, Faps have taken the place of Milo at Keenets....so if you want anything by Faps the Keenet stockists should be able to get hold of it.[:D]

FAPS poles are brilliant. when i worked for dick clegg id handle all the new models from italy that had just been imported. brilliant stuff. a little on the expensive side but stiff, light and great packages. brittania angling in barnsley, a major stockist of FAPS stock all the poles. id recommend one to anyone.

a slight tanjent from reel lines, but needed to b done.

Ok from my experince, I use a line called genesis in a green box, the dia is micro small (10lbs genesis is same as ultmia 4lbs line dia). I have only found it in 250M packs but retails for about 6.50 and covers all weights for course and carp fishing (1.1lbs to 22lbs)
Tight lines ppls

Diawa Sensor bulk for me too, dead cheap and excellent value. I spool all my reels full to the lip, use it until it is either too low or for a couple of years then wind it on to a spare spool with a bit of backing if required, and use the other end for another few years. It doesn't seem to weaken with age or go brittle but keep it in the dark when not in use.
