Be sure to stretch it out good before using.

So, I guess, I'm suggesting you take a couple of spools if you expect the temps to vary significantly. Tropical for the heat of the day, something a bit stiffer for cool mornings. (Cool defined as under 80).

Looks like there's a definite threshold to look out for. I'll bring my Sage LMB taper as well, just in case. Now you really made me curious to see how these lines will perform. I'll be sure to report back when I return.

That doesn't sound like fun. I'll have to remember to switch out the lines when I get back.

Thanks,
