Thinnest Mono?

Recommended Posts

25 lb mono is not thin at all.  If you want 25 lb i suggest going braid or floro they are much smaller diameters for LB test

I know that 25 isnt thin I just want to get the thinnest 25lb line I can. I need heavy line for swimbaits. Does braid do well with swimbaits?

Lake Fork says their mono is thinner than the competition.

P-line CX and Evolution are also a bit thinner, I use the latest for SB.

I don't like braid for heavy lures or treble hooks, I have had a couple of expensive air snaps with braid.

I use 25# pline cxx on my swimbait set up it works fine but I'm sure there are thinner. I doubt any 25# mono, floru, or copoly is going to be thin. Braid would work fine. Musky guys have been throwing big baits on it for years. I'd go with heavy braid though so it would still be thick.

Yo-Zuri Hybrid #15 is 21.5 lb test. When treated

with KVD Line & Lure Conditioner, it is reasonably

manageable on a baitcaster. The line diameter is

.016". This line is as strong as you need for virtually

any freshwater fishing.

I'd love to see you throw an 8" Hudd on that stuff. ::D

The thinnest mono would be Magnathin, great line if you fish where there 's no cover and sandy bottom, other than that the line 's resistant to abrassion is near zero.

No. Save yourself the headache and go with mono 20-25# test. I like either Maxima or Pline CXX.

Why doesn't braid do well with swimbaits ? Please explain.

Check each company's website that you might be interested in buying.

Most if not all will list dia. per lb. test. Also BPS and Cabelas list diameter for the lines they sell. Tackle Warehouse has pretty detailed sizes also. If you can afford it, Sunline is probably the smallest per lb. test. 25 lb SN mono is .015. $11.99 for 330 yds. Not that bad.

I never use braid with my swimbaits, copolymer or mono only. Here is a link that tells you a few problems with braid and swimbaits.

P-Line CXX and the word "thin" don't belong in the same sentence.

Strength and the word 'thin' don't belong in the same sentence.

I would reiterate what was recommended on a prior post.  Strength to diameter, I'd say Tectan.  It is good line, and casts very well.  Of course, you will sacrifice a bit of abrasion resistance.

I only throw plastic swimbaits and have been happy with BPS 20lb Excel, which I also use for my spinnerbaits.  It is inexpensive and reliable.
