    I love my braided spiderline. I get the 8lb equivalent, which I think is 20lb actual, or something around that. The braided has less memory and casts like a dream. I always use a long leader of 6 lb the fish don't see the braided line anyways. I am mostly trout fishing in high altitude mountain lakes and rivers. Sometimes I do try catfishing with it. I also use a telescoping pole....and I LOVE it.
    I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

    Being that I have little kids and live in a community with ponds, we have a few of the kiddy poles with built in reel. The come with a little tackle at the big stores for about $10 each. I have to admit, my kids and I have pulled many sunfish, crappie and blue gill out of the ponds with those poles. The thought of keeping one in the car for my own use has crossed my mind!
    From my experience, the kiddie poles aren't bad rod and reels. I started with one when I was a kid, so did most of my siblings.
