Default Tippets

I'm wondering if I could use Berkley® FireLine Crystal™ Micro Ice Fishing Line 2lb as tippet material??

Diameter wise it is in the right ball park for 7-8x. My guess is it all depends on it's memory and flexibilty. You could certainly try it and see. For future reference a question like this should be posted in General Discussion as apposed to News and Articles for Discussion.

Alot will be determined if it rolls over with your cast. Also, if it floats. If it's a soft line, you may have problems. I use Berkley XL myself. 2 and 6 lb. test. So far, so good!
