Best Mono for Marlin
Hi I am looking to upgrade my 30 two-speeds with new line to replace the 80lb crappy Chinese 8-strand braid I had filled them up with.
This is what I intend to do:
I am thinking of ordering some 65# JB Line One solid braid and use 600yds as backing on my two reels. I intend to topshot it with 200-300 yds 50# mono. I use these reels offshore.
What 50# mono would be the best choice, with an actual BS of 60+ ? (Keep in mind JB breaks at 90+)
I am currently considering these options but any new one would be welcome that would do the job. 1. Momoi Hi-Catch, 2. Trilene Big Game. I already have two 1/4# spools of Big Game (275yds each.) I also see Berkley ProSpec as a lower diameter option but don't know much about the line.
Is there any low dia mono that is suitable for billfish? I am also considering the option to use only mono if I can get 600+ yds of 50# on my 30's
PS. I know most of you big game fishermen out there would want to suggest hollow-core JB instead of solid, but that is currently beyond my budget.
