Default Another Braided Line Thread

Took the 50# Spider Wire Invisi-Braid off my large spool vintage Abu Garcia and re-spooled it with my trusty Sufix 832 Super Line in 50#. I tried the Spider Wire based on some comments of some of PFF folks. The Invisi-Braid broke on me once during a cast and again this morning while landing a Lady Fish. I checked very closely for any nicks or spurs on the reel and the 7' H Falcon rod which still has some new on it. Maybe it was just a bad 300 yd spool. The breaks were not clean - like a knife or scissor cut - but ragged with frayed filaments - like being pulled apart.

Anyone else having problems with Spider Wire Invisi-Braid???

How did you tie your leader on?

50# for inshore?

yeah...I use 10# Spiderwire Invisibraid and tie to 8#, 10#, or 15# fluorocarbon leader with a uni-uni knot. I use about 18" to 24" of leader.

I can pull my 17' skiff with it when I have 10# or 15# leader.

Not sure why it is fraying, but you should probably check the line rating on your rod and go with something more appropriate.

If you are tying a leader on using a swivel you could have fish like Spanish mackerel hitting at the swivel breaking you off.

50# braid is rather large for inshore. I use 10# power pro with a 20# mono or flouro leader depending on what I'm doing. I also tie it on with a double uni knot.

Regardless of whether 50# is heavy for inshore fishing, it should never have frayed like that and I have yet to experience that myself with any brand of braid including Invisibraid, but things do happen.

IF (and don't be offended for me stating) knots slip in braided line it usually has a "hairlike" end rather than clean cut or a pigtail like in mono. It will instead have appear rubbed off

I had several breaks in the line well above the leader on one spool of 12#...Thought my hook may have nicked it or something...It is the only incident of that nature in dozens of spools ...Now wind knots are a different story !

Remember to check your guides too, you might have a cracked ceramic insert. I had that happen to me out at the rigs, twice in a row that rod got knocked down and the line broke almost immediately. Not exactly what I wanted to do with a newly spooled reel with Ace Hollow PP. Tip ceramic insert was cracked and was cutting the line under load.

First of all - NO LEADER. And NO breakage at any knot. With the Lady Fish this morning, I seen the line break about half way to the fish. With the break in mid-cast, I had less than 10' of line past the rod tip and I saw a good 20' of line flying through the air trailing behind a NEW 3/4 oz salt water Rattld Trap. Checked all equipment VERY close, including rod line guides and tip - no nicks, spurs, sharp edges. Re-spooled with Sufix and fished this afternoon w/ no problems (except that I didn't catch any fish).

I use the heavier line for better line management on the older large spool baitcaster, specifically, in this case, an Abu Garcia 6600 ABS in silver. Not like some bass fishermen that use 65# braid on their low profiles.

It musta been a bad spool.

Thx for the responses...

I had the same problem with a spool of seaugar braid, only time I've ever had a problem with braid though.

You must've had a bad spool, last time I had 50# braid break on me it was rubbing against pilings.
