SX1-what lb test for 8 or 10lb fluoro diameter?

Postby stingray23 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:33 pm

I'm looking to buy some SX1 for a stradic Ci4+ 4000XG my cousin just bought. There is no conversion chart showing the diameter of the braid. I'm looking for an 8lb or 10lb fluoro diameter equivalent. Would the 16lb SX1 be good?

I use 16lb on my Emeraldas 2506 with 6 and 8lb fluoro and like it a lot. Been doing it for a few years now.

How thick is the 16? Would you say its as thick as 8lb, 10lb fluoro?

Perfect. Where did you get the diameter for the braid?
