I hate tying knots, so I got 1000m of 35kg braid on trade me and dont use any shock leader at all.
All fingers still attached and no blood yet.Have spooled two rods and plenty left.With plenty of
line strenght I can horse big rig in fairly fast.Also good security when a big blob of weed or sticks
latch on to line.All hook setups are attached using a clip on braid and hooks and sinker are
crimped to 100lb mono.
