I would say that you don't get cheap on the line. I would say get some Berkley Fireline. It is like 11-14 dollars. It is almost impossible to break, no matter what pound test you get, and it is SUPRISINGLY nice casting. If that is out of the question, Stren Sense A Thin.

Hey Matt, quit trying to bring people to fly fishing, before you know it, the fly streams will be too crowded and we will have to switch back to spin fishing haha.

hahaha, Mauser06, I would suggest that you never fly fish. It is for those old people. It is boring. hahaha, I will do anything to free up the streams.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Use a name brand line. Like Trilene,Stren, Andes,or Silver thread. Premium mono isnt that expensive.Under 10 bucks most places.If you go cheap youll pay later.Believe me its a tough lesson when you have a 12 pound striper hooked on.

them lines are name brands...just like 10 bux for a 1/4 pound spool..thats why i asked if they were any good.... i will stick with my stren easy cast on my light spools and super tough or sumthin of the sort on my heavier spools...i did consider fireline..for about 30secs ...i read the price...25 bux for 300yds...id need about 125bux to string up my main spools...plus other ones i have! thats crazy from what i see...i change my line on my spools i use the most 2wice a year...that gets expensive!!...and when i was lil my dad used to use that shakespear crap taht was like 2 bux....i caught a 36+inch carp on it in heavy current with rocks and brush everywhere on 8lb test...and i was proly 8 or sumwhere round that age...i will spend the money on stren but not fireline!
