Do you guys use dacron or braid to rig eels? I just picked up 130# test for rigging. It was a suggestion from whitewater.

i use doubled over 80lb dacron so thats 160lb?, personal opinion is that the thicker dacron will last longer and is more durable than the thinner braid however I have no data to support this. i take 40" of 80# dacron double it over and snell the rear hook with half hitches...dab of super glue and im ready for surgery.

I was like whatttt when he suggested braid but than i saw the braid and compared it to dacron once you hit the higher # braid it starts becoming just as thick as mono or close. But the braid was very thick. He said it would be stronger than dacron. Worth a shot. Didn't pay much for it anyway.
