Brought some 8lb 0.20mm diameter Mustard mono a few years and have just run out of it. Been looking around on the internet and in stores and I cant find any line that can match this daimeter even the thinnest 6lb line I can find is still 0.22mm.
Anyone know if you can still buy Mustard line in NZ or another good quality mono line that has a reasonanly fine diameter?? looking for 6lb or 8lb.06/11/2011 at 5:51 am #19133yellowfinParticipant
Some lines are overrated in strength some are underrated. If you have a mic machine thing to test diameter a lot of lines will be different to what it says on the spool. Just get a quality brand mono closest to 0.22 doesn’t matter if it says it’s 6lb chances are it will actually break at 8lb or your Mustard was overrated.06/11/2011 at 6:15 am #19138
Yeah the mustard 8lb seems very thin when compared to other 8lb lines so im guessing it might have a lower breaking point than the 8lb stated on the spool.
I also have mustard 12lb plus 50lb and they also seem thin for there breaking point.
Has anyone used 4lb line for Trout fishing?06/11/2011 at 6:59 am #19140MiliwolfParticipant
Have tried 4lb line but I could not control myself and broke all the knots when testing them….
Was the Mustad line tippet material or mainline ?06/11/2011 at 7:34 am #19143
Mainline.10/11/2011 at 5:22 am #19198
Just brought some platypus 6lb line with a 0.23mm diameter. Seems stronger than the 8lb mustad
