400 pound monofilament

Postby frank » Tue Mar 12, 2013 7:40 pm

Does anyone know where i can get 400 lb monofilament to re-do my decoys to texas rigs in Canada??
I have got some quotes from a few places like SNL Corp, Doctrai long line and a couple other and there shipping rates to Canada are stupid crazy.

Any help if any would be a great help
Thanks

Not bad stuff, I've still got a dozen or two lying around that are rigged with this stuff.

I personally cant stand 400lb mono. I tryed it and it tangles. Run two doz deeks together and it will make a mess. Seen it too many times. My buddies still run it and while they are untangling there Im tossing mine out.

here is what i use, and it is amazing stuff to stay the least. Hold up like a champ in all weather condtions. I have put 6 doz deeks on the same beaner and have never had a tangle. Just grab the deeks and go. I did have to tap my molds out to a larger size but well worth the couple minutes that took. I cant say enough about it. You get dang near 900' for under $40.

Heres a link to what I texas rig all my deeks with.

How do you manage to lift 6 dozen decoys at a time? I run a couple thousand on mono and don't have any complaints. I also get mine from snl corp.

I use the 400lb mono from Snlcorp and I've always been very happy with it. My only complaint would be that 4oz weights do not slide seamlessly on the line like 6 and 8oz weights do.

You can drill out the 4oz ones to make them work, but it's kind of a pain. I transport all my dekes on a carabiner so when I get to my spot I just unhook all of the dekes at once and throw them out, never really had any issues with tangling.

With one had grab the beaner, with the other grab down on the cord and sling it. We are not carrying these deeks around, merely floating them while cleaning up and then sling them in the boat. Not a daunting tasks, these arnt super mags or honkers.

If we had to pack in hunt it would be a different story.

I've found that regular weedeater string from lowes in .080 diameter works great and is much cheaper than monofliment. 1000 feet spool for $40 or so. 2 seasons on 330 decoys so far with no issues. It comes in all drifferant colors but I chose the dark green. Using nicopress brand crimp sleeves part # 188-4-VM

We typically use weed eater string but I found some spear gun monofilament leader online in the same diameter in smoke gray and it was cheaper.
