what "size" fishing line do you use

white_rabbit_alice 12/16/2015 01:38 pm 2489

was just curious i use a brand available at walmart called zebco omniflex and up until this point i've used 20 pound test (i believe if not then it was a 25 pound test) but my latest project had me questioning sizes as i wanted something ungodly durable since i didn't know how heavy the final project would be and i knew this project would have me at an anime convention walking around all day and i just bought two 50 pound test spools and thus far i'm fairly compatent in my choice but wanted to know what others used for fishing line to know if i'd made a reasonable choice

I use 20 pound for small stuff and 10 pound for tiny things and would suggest 40 pound braided for larger things

I usually use 12lb for mask, it makes it easier to work with and tie off.

I usually use 15-25 pound tests depending on what I make. A cuff would be 20 and a mask will be 25.
