  11. I think my problem is that Tasline 15LB shows a stated breaking strength of 23.8 (from the info on the website and I'll assume on the package) and when I sorted by Stated LB the Tasline shows up in the 24Lb category (by itself). But when you compare it to the actual strength, S/W line mass or diameter of Yozuri Super Braid Blue it is closer to the 15 than it is the 20, if that makes sense. I'm not sure why I'm so hung up on this I think I going to try the Yozuri Super Braid Blue in a few different applications, LOL. Once again, Thank You for all the work you have put in on this, now I have to learn to tie the FG, though I am pretty happy with the Slim Beauty.
  12. Question regarding the Tasline. I'll use the Tasline White 12 LBS and Tasline White 15 LBS as examples. Why are their stated LBS 20.6 and 23.7 and their breaking strength 19.3 and 23.8? I see where the stated LBS come from on their website, but by rating them with the 20# lines it looks like their breaking strength is below or at their stated strength. They would both look great as 12 and 15# lines, but average as 20 and 24.
  13. Thank you Tourstage, EricDice and Aquaholik. I just sorted the test by stated strength, which puts the data in a form that I can relate to. Is it safe to infer that Green is better, yellow is fair and Red is poor regarding breaking strength?
  14. Apparently, my pasting parts of the braid test docs didn't work. Trying to figure this out
  15. Aqua, Thank you for all of the work that you have done with the braided line testing. Have you made any conclusions as to which braids you recommend? It's funny how much of a discrepancy there is between # tests of certain braids. For example: Would it be safe to assume that depending on what use you might decide to go with different lines? Using the above example 40# PP seems to be a better line that the 50# PP. So if you are set on using a 50# line there are other 50# lines that would be a better choice. For example: Am I reading this right? Thanks, Tony
