  • Sufficient replacement for Maxima line???

    I might sound like a bit of a tightwad here but i'm looking for a cheaper replacement for my reellines. I have noticed my most recent Maxima wasn't that good quality wise compared to previous spools. This could have been a bad batch but i thought it would be a good chance to try something new.

    I have seen Daiwa sensor for about £8 for 3000 M bulk spools and people on the forums seem to think its a good line. Do you think its a suitable replacement for the Maxima?

    I reason I have went for Maxima in the past is that its a stretchy, sinking line. Does anyone have any experience of using Sensor and able to clarify if its any good in the stretchy, sinking department.

    Many thanks

    I use it for most of my fishing, but only in bs 10_25lb.its a bit springy but tough as old boots and cheap as chips. used max for years the bekley big game now i stick with sensor clear and brown,its got a fair bit of stretch and the heavier bs sinks well,but mines usually got plenty of lead on it lol.give it a try mate.Regards Peter.

      i'd be looking to use it in 4 and 6 lb breaking strains. will that make any difference or does the quality run through all breaking strains?

          It's a pretty good line for those on a budget, go for it!

              Daiwa sensor all the way 7.99 for about 2000 metres is very good value you can make it sink or float its quite versatile
