Default Re: Newb with casting and line problems

The lady was probably Joan Wulff.

Inspect the line. Being a level line, it actually has more of the floating material at the tip. It should float better than a tapered line that has relatively more of the core and less of the floating material. Because it is a level line that is sinking, I suspect it is old; and I bet that you will find multiple circular dark lines around the line. These are cracks. I think you need a new line. A moderately priced Wf 7 or 8 F should do.
