    could anyone recommend a good brand of line for making up pole rigs
    in about the +6llb b/s
    and also a good brand of line for hook lengths

      Its all down to prefernce you'll get differnet answers off everyone, i've used Preston Powerline and Shimano Silk Shock to good effect but have eventually settled on Ultima Power Match, the 0.16 in this snaps at just over 6lb I think

          Tried many but keep going back to W B Clarke match line which used to be Silstar, brilliant for rigs & hooklengths.

            Shimano silk shock,preston powerline and fox micro plus are all top lines for rigs and hooklengths,but as already stated-everyone has their personal preferences. I've just started using silk shock and it seems very good so far. I bought some milo match carp line off ebay a while back,which I found terrible to use and awful for knots-they kept damaging the line no matter how much I wet it-never had that trouble before or since.
