  • Reel lines

    I need to put new line on my reels and just wondered what other people use. The reels i use are:-

    Adu 501/506 for stick float fishing


    shimano exage for waggler and pellet waggler

      Maxima is not brilliant for top and bottom floats, try Bayer.
      For the waggler reel, Maxima is fine, but I have been using Ultima Power Plus for a couple of years and am very impressed with it. It will not sink as easily as Maxima, but with a drop of washing up liquid it is fine. Sometimes Maxima sinks too deep and can pull the float off line, hence the change.

        Ive just switched to fenderline. Best line I have ever used, no line memory at all and very low in diameter.
        I don't exaggerate... I just remember BIG!
