You are right with marketing departments Miliwolf. I think stone bruising has been an issue for me with the Suffix 7lb line I was using with most lures lost while casting which virtually never happens for me. The section of water I was fishing was flowing quite quickly with my lure often bouncing along the stones.
I too like light tackle for trout kevo, just wish I wouldn’t always hook the bigger fish when I can’t chase them down river. The hook wouldn’t have pulled last night if I could have followed it.
