Default Re: Windons for 50's

Dustin's right. The limiting factor will be the clearance through the guides. You can certainly use 1.80mm mono wind-on and possibly 2.00 or even a touch thicker and that would be plenty of abrasion resistance (you'll never pull hard enough to snap it). But, the wrapping over the dacron over the mono has to be super-slim or it will jamb. Rigging floss (80lb) will be too thick; 35lb might be ok; waxed dental floss will be better but being so thin it takes ages to half-hitch several inches to cover the joint.
