Been using spectra braid for a few years now, love it on my multi... However on my 525 mag2 (which flies) with 6oz and 60lb spectra 0.37 I am easily finding myself with an empty spool. I fish various marks in and around scarborough, last night after a session waited for the ebb to low water and had a few casts realising i am 100yds out max with no line left. I really need to be 150yds to reach certain gullies and holes from a high water mark. As tide ebbs i can foot it onto the beach and with the 525mag2 or 525gs can reach the gully straight through with existing setup. Currently i use the 6oz straight through, never had any problems, my mate suggests moving onto 8 strand spider with a breaking strain of 44lb at 0.2mm- so i presume i need to use a shockleader ? 60lb ? could i use some of my current 60lb braid as a shockleader, i assume straight through with the 44lb with 6oz on the cast will be a problem... and which knot do i use if leader is required. Been thinking, maybe use like the Berkley 50lb on the 525mag2 as its diameter is quoted as being .018 - or am i on the edge of disaster here ? BTW i can't use fixed spool reels. Advice welcomed on brand of braid, breaking strain, leader ? TIA.
