Best Replacement Planer Reel Line??
« on: July 07, 2015, 05:39:13 PM »

I've got big jon planer reels and pulleys, and the standard yellow dacron(?) line run out to my walker planer boards, I've had the line break in the middle two times now, looking for advice on replacing the line. Any recommendations on better lines?
Thanks, Josh

I use the 200 lb spectra sold for downfigger cable.  Works great.

Been using it for years.  You'll wonder why you havnt been...  Releases slide much easier and it adds a bit of a "shock absorber" between the boat and the planer.   :thmb:
