Like the 5.5x option
I've been trying to use thinner tippet for euro nymphing, but have been getting some breakoffs on 6x. We could attribute that to poor fish fighting skills, but that's beside the point if we're comparing apples to apples. (While people always mention higher strength in terms of fighting fish, it also helps increase your chance of getting out a snag without breaking.) I do fine with 5x, but prefer a faster sink rate. Along comes Fulling Mill at 5.5x and >4 lb breaking strength, problem solved as a compromise. No breakoffs this past trip, and $5 less than the TroutMaster for a 50M spool. RIO FlouroFlex is $15 for 30 yds, this is $20 for 50m, so obviously a better deal in that sense. Recommended.
