About time I replace my downrigger cable. I am debating between staying with the tried and tru stainless cable or making the switch to the spectra or similar line.
Any thoughts or opinions?
Spectra seems to be gaining popularity. The main reason for the switch would be the reduced blow back. The hum has never bothered me, in fact I feel more confident when the wires are hummin'. Is the blow back really greatly reduced?
I feel confident in my catching currently. Until I am catch as many or more with the spectra, I will be second guessing the switch....
for those that are using spectra, which brand do you recommend? for those using stainless, have a cheap source (seems I end up replacing at least once a yr)
FYI...I am handcranking (I like it) scottys on a glass boat.
Thanks for any and all input!
