H20 xpress braid

Recommended Posts

There's probably plenty of threads, but I'm looking for specific instances. I was experimenting with 30lb h20x braid the other day on my reel. Was practicing casting with it, no back lashes, no problems whatsoever. Not changing my technique. Then one cast, sounds like a firecracker, and my weight goes flying off into the field. Didn't know what to think. Sprayed RM spray on it and took it out the other day. Was casting a sebile seeker rattle trap the other day, catching fish, nothing wrong. Then, it happens, and I watch my favorite rattle trap soar off into the depths of the pond. Am I doing something wrong? Is this braid just THAY the? Any help appreciated.

If there was a birdsnest before you casted, even a slight one, braid may snap and send your bait down range. Most braids are strong and reliable, so for me it comes down to smoothness. 832 is my favorite so far.

No bird nest whatsoever. That's why I'm so shocked. Just out of nowhere. Unless you mean mideast it started to bird nest and then snap. I'm still scratching my head. Gonna go with 832 next probably. Thanks

I had 50lb powerpro do the same thing one time. It snapped inside of the reel and sounded as you described. I just thought that there was a small backlash someone that I missed. I hated to see my favorite buzz bait sink to the middle of the pond though.

Pay attention to the braid at the spool when you have to pull loose from a snag. My theory is the braid buries itself then when you cast to that point it can't get loose and sounds like a fire cracker. Also make sure you spool it on tight when you originally put it on your reel.
