Alright guys im after some info regarding wire traces for pike what lb rating is suitable and does anyone have a link for a supplier would rather buy them ready made cos im lazy :-D thanks for any help guys
Absolutely spot on :clap::clap::clap:TBH - the lb b/s is more to do with the lure weight in practise:
No pike is ever going to snap 20lb line unless you're a idiot or suffer a disaster.
I use 20lb for tiny jigs where hardly any casting is involved or if there is: it's short and pin-point. (with 10lb PP)
" " 30lb for general lures/SP's less than 3/4 oz (with 20/30lb PP)
" " 60lb for bigger stuff (with 30lb PP)
" " 100lb Ti for jerks/Dawgs etc etc (with 65 or 100lb PP)
Wire degrades with repeated casting and working hence stepping up B/S against the line B/S.
If you're using 10g SP's and 5g/10g Jig heads or thereabouts 30lb is fine.
