I’m fishing a 15 pound fluorocarbon on a spinner reel. when i cast it doesn’t feel like it flys as far as momentum alone should carry it. it also tends to spring off in groups and twist up on the way out. it’s been on there for a good bit, so unless memory holds a lot longer than i think it does on 15 pound (my ten pound line did something similar but fixed itself quick). is there something i could improve on technique-wise, or something i could do to my gear?
I personally don’t like fluro on a spinning reel, tried it once a few years ago so maybe my experience is a bit limited. Quite possibly the new polymers are a bit more manageable. Have no problem with fluro leader on a baitcasting rig but I avoid it on spinning reels.
