#2 or #4 lb MONOFILAMENT

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has ever used
Tectan monofilament line? normally I use
Stren Magnathin #4lb, I've notice Cabela's been selling it for years out of the catalog
also does anyone know if they sell it out of the store down in Owatonna? or do I have to order it from the catalog,

thanks,

I've been using Tectan mono for a while now and it has worked well for me. It has the smallest diameter of any 2lb line that I could find and has proved to be tough for the diameter.(I'd use 1lb if I could find it)

It comes in a sealed package that will let you keep it for quite a while without oxidizing on the shelf.

definitely
had problems last year with breakage using light trilene line. so a buddy of mine and i went to cabelas and started looking at the nice selection they had. still confoosed as to which way to go a salesman came up to us and started asking Q's. after about a half hour of back and forth we decided to split a package.
about a week later we had split another package for our other reels.
he has stepped up to the big stuff for his cat rod. i have not yet.
no plans to change lines before the first outing. figured we would see what happens.

definitely limp and strong. this is what we wanted for the panfish setups.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
