Been wanting to here some reviews on the Sonik Line 🤔🤔

Just asked for any opinions and reviews in the tackle section of this forum. If it's good as they claim it may be time for a respool!?

Good shout. The "bible" of fishing lines. They update this quite regularly too. Latest issue - http://www.tacklebox.co.uk/pdfs/line_tests_issue12f.pdf  :)

Alas, no test of the new SubSonik line yet...

Let me know how you get on with it please. Very interested. May just buy a spool anyway and see how I get on.

I found the Gardner Pro line in 12lb its really strong and round, good quality, cheap. Its ok buying a cheap in, but most don't spool all that well, and come off in coils despite how hard you try. I found this even good for my floater fishing, its seems the carp find the green colour hard to detect? Its worth also running a decent amount of line off in the park, and winding it back on through your finger and thumb. Long grass is perfect as it works out all the coils. 😇
