Light action rods...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, got a question... What brand of line do you guys prefer for a light action rod, such as a BPS Wally Marshall Pro light action spinning combo? Pretty sure I wanna stick with mono.. Right now I have it spooled with Suffix Siege 6lb test but was thinking about trying something else... Mostly just using this rod for throwing Senkos and other smaller plastics and havin' a little fun. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

Anybody got any other tips on using a light action rod?? Anything is welcome!

For mono I like Stren in the purple box.  Used to use Berkley XL in the red box but had too many issues with line breakage when tying knots so I stopped using it.  No more issues using Stren.

#4 Yo-Zuri Hybrid or Hybrid Ultra Soft.

Thanks guys!

Not a fan of Stren's lighter test lines, seems like I have the same knot issues you have with the Berkley with this stuff and sometimes with the Suffix as well lol... Thanks though Rooster!

Do any stores carry Ultra Soft? I can never seem to find it anywhere and I'm stuck without a credit card for a little while... I've looked at BPS, Gander Mountain, Wally World, Sports Authority, and a few local shops but all they ever have is the regular Hybrid...

I've tried US in 12lb test and didn't seem too fond of it for some reason. Don't remember exactly why, but I will give the 4lb test a try if I can get a hold of it somewhere...

Would I be much worse off going with 6lb?

I 'm a nylon user for the better part, Trilene XT 4/6 lbs test, it 's cheap, can be found everywhere, highly abrassion resistant and incredibly strong for a nylon line.
