Default Re: Tropical Lines Question

I got my reels loaded up with Rio tropical lines for the Florida trip at the end of the month. I put the Outbound Short Intermediate on my Super 9, and the Tropical Clouser floating on my Super 8. I'll post a trip report when I get back.

They also have a greater tendency to coil and twist than braided core lines regardless of temperature.

You'll have to check the specs on each different line as Rio, SA and probably others make both types.
Jim,

From what I could find out on their website, the Rio tropical lines have braided cores.

Thanks for the information and advice.

I haven't tried them yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. My trip to the Gulf Coast of Florida is at the end of August.
