    Default Shimano technium mono 12lb

    Hi all
    Looking for a bit of advice, i got some of this in 15lb but looks a bit wiry so am looking if anyone uses the 12lb and what's it like with strength and abrasion.
    Many thanks
    Jamie.

    Is this the black stuff? If so I've used the 15 in black and it does go nice a supple after a few uses. Bomb proof IMO. I fish in some savage weed and it's been great. Cast very well and sink very well. I moved on to this after using 16lb pro clear. No shock leaders needed which helps

    Yeah the black one got 15lb but just looks and feels thicker and thought the 12lb would be stong enough.

    Black 12lb is inbelievably strong also and a different animal than the 15lb in terms of how it behaves. Best line on the market imo

    The 15lb is better imo. I used to use the 12 but have lost fish in very heavy weed and can hit 130 yards with a rig and 3.25tc rods without to much trouble with the 15lb. Gets much more supple after a couple of uses. Wouldn’t use anything else now.
