WOW thanks everyone, I really appreciate all of your opinions
Best lot of replys I have had
And Revolution, I dont think I have ever received such an informative response.
I think i may check out this 8pick braid from Sunline Cast Away, for my larger fish, as they apparently dont come lighter than 10lb, and only come in 1 colour which wont make seeing the line when flicking sp's easy.
By the way, just my experience, the other week when i 1st bought and started using SP's, i was imediatly getting hits from larger fish, and i kept being snapped off, I think one was a Jewie at Tingalpa Creek, and one was a big Bream at Wellington Point Jetty and I was using 10lb braid and 10lb Berkly Vanish leader, so having lost these (best fish i would have caught) I went and bought 10lb Black Magic leader, have not had any breaks since. Then today I read somewhere on the net that many people reckon Berkly Vanish are very weak at the knots, which is where my Vanish was also failing. Since then I got hit by something hard at Eprapah Creek, flicking for bream then wack something just hit it and ran like there was tomorrow, but it spat the hook, but in saying that, i believe i would of been snapped off if I were still using the Vanish leader.
For those that are wondering where these locations are I'm from Brisbane, fishing at Thorneside, Wellington Point and Victoria Pt
Also the set up I have been using for the past few years has been a 2.5-5kg UglyStik Platinum (something a bit shy of 6ft), dunno what diff the platinum is but anyways, and I i forget what reel exactly but its a 2500 Shimano of some sort, plus the lines i mentioned.
Obviously the Rod wasnt overly sensitive, but some of the things I caught on it, that rod was unbreakable, Sharks and everything.
