Braid line on fast action rods

4 posts in this topic

is there any problem with using braided line on my fast action trolling rods for walleye?? I am worried that they're might not be enough shock absorbing with the fast action and no stretch braid. Walleye lips don't provide enough of a meal

If you have to use a fast action rod for cranks, then I'd go with mono. You'll get more stretch to make up for the speed of the rod. Moderate action rods are going to treat you much better with either line...

Slow to moderate wins out with braid. Too many fish come unbuttoned with braid and fast action rods. Like Matt said you'd be better off with mono on that setup.

I have medium power/fast action rods i use with BB for eyes. I kinda thought that braids no stretch properties would be a little tough. Needed confirmation
