    Great video !!
    Man, that got the blood pumping. I am so addicted, it’s ridiculous. Damn fish disappeared for a bit. What type of smooth braided line do you suggest. Currently using 7’2” Terrez with Stella 5000 with power pro slick 20 lb. it doesn’t seem to get the cast that I want. Is there a better braid out there

    1. leighton

      try a longer rod but also power pro super slick braid is good

    2. Kevin Blinkoff

      Power Pro Slick is a great option. You might want to try a longer, lighter rod for the albies.

    3. Ryan Despres

      POWER PRO is complete -. Use Daiwa J BRAID 8. youll thank me later
