    Slammer III Spinning 6500

    Picked one up last December from Amazon and finally will be able to use it in a couple months, that being said this googan needs some advice on what to put on it line wise... Shore/Pier fishing only.

    Thanks!

    200yrrd 20lb braid top shot with 15- 17 lb mono your choice to fill out your spool
    OR just all mono in your favorite flavor..... make it some easily seen by us older guys with marginal eye sight

    The first is what I put on my newly acquired 5500 spinfisher vi(new $20.00 local flea market)..... looking forward to trying it out myself along with a couple rods to see if they fish good before taking time to strip & redo
    Bill..............

    I like to fill mine two-thirds with braid (20-30#) and fill it the rest of the way with 16# Hi Viz Momoi.

    I use 15 pound yozuri hybrid myself over the braid. Just wondering, do you guys tie a uni to uni knot to join the braid to mono or ????

    I do, and never had a problem, but with the scarcity of big kings, those knots are not often tested---at least not as often as I'd like. Sharks? Meh.
