    Spot lock- anchor

    My schedule involves traveling. . But I do make it home weekends. Be glad to let you have as much time on the Ultrex as you'd like. I love it. We could always put Fishman in the boat so we'd at least get a biscuit LOL

    Rain gear recommendation??

    Carhart is supposed to have some nice ranger. Have no experience with their rainwear but it's worth looking at. Guide wear that I have has been worth every penny. Bought in bargain cave several years ago, product was going through running change and I lucked out. It would be difficult to have rainwear that will perform well in both winter and summer.

    Co-poylomer line?

    Braid has it;s place, lot of folks like it. I enjoy reading about other guy's experiences with products. Fluorocarbon is very popular as well. Just wanted input from this site. Hope you like the Seaguar.

    Co-poylomer line?

    From http://www.tackletour.com/reviewsufixdna.html Copolymer is a product of copolymerization, which is a chemical reaction in which two or more molecules combine to form a larger molecule that contains repeating structural units, or in other words the combination of two or more monomers to create a copolymer. The outcome of this process results in a material that has many more benefits than a solo substance. The copolymer fishing line becomes more abrasion resistant, have a lower stretch factor, higher tensile strength, higher impact and greater shock resistance, and much more. Not sure, but the view independent tests I've found all claim less stretch than nylon. seems the best benefit is better abrasion resistance. The marketing guru's have tried to leave the impression that monofilament is only nylon, a ploy to gussy up the copolymar and fluorocarbon sales. Monofilament refers to protrusion and all 3 are monfiliment. We'll save that for a cold winter day LOL Not all fishing lines, either category, are created equal. Sometimes it's true---we get what we pay for! Kinda tit for tat. As for me, verdict is still out! And thanks for all the replies

    Co-poylomer line?

    https://swiftflyfishing.com/blogs/news/15472069-cutting-through-the-bullshit-the-mono-vs-fluoro-debate is an interesting read. Note the "received wisdom" mentioned. I'm doing a bit of research for a marketing program. There seems to be a lot on the subject of fishing line written and very little independent testing. I am going to try some Izorline. Regardless of stretch pros or cons, I personally don't care for Fluorocarbon even though I will use the remaining Red Label I have now. Hopefully we all get our line stretched by a big bass! Did find this interesting: Sunline is the largest line only manufacturing company in the world---Japan 187 employees
