Hi i have a shimano sahara 1000 and put some 6lb tuf line 0.06mm 1lb equivalent but it doesnt hold hardly any is there a thinner braid i was thinking berkley fireline 4lb test but it says its 0.12mm thats twice the diameter as the tuf line 6lb or is tuf line off on there diameters or is there a thinner braid i should consider?

I use nanofil in many grades, fireline I went away from in the past because of that sawing action it had on the guides. Good luck with what you choose.......Jetspray

My question is what do you mean by it doesn't hold hardly any?

The spool holds 140yds of 4lb mono, equivalent to about 150yds of 10lb powerpro and should easily hold the 150yds of Tuffline you have (unless the box was mis-labeled and you have a larger diameter line). That is plenty of line for what the reel was designed for. If you need more capacity, go to a bigger reel.

Me personally, I do not like braid under .006" (.15mm): harder to see, harder to tie knots, any little nick will break the line and is very prone to wind knots (due to line twist). Again, just my opinion from experience and eyes getting older.

I put 10 yards of 6lb mono backing plus 150 yards of 3lb sufix nano braid. Can fit way more.
The 3lb Nano braid they say has 6lb breaking strength.

I always use 4lb. test (Stren Clear Blue Fluorescent). Help me out with braid. Why do you use it? Do you use it for bait fishing? Casting lures? Trolling?
Thanks.

hi the reason i use braid is because its thinner than mono 4lb test braid is as thin as 1lb test monofilament so my reel will hold more of it also it doesnt have memory so it will not come off in loops and is real sensitive because of no stretch i use it for bait and lures

4 or 6 pound mono for trout all day never had any luck the one time i tried it and only tried it because lurkers916 gave me a reel with some brand knew 4 or 6 pound braid tried it out 3 trips and it was the rod that never got touched and the mono rod had to catch the limit solo. But thats just me and my opinion. Ive bben slaying trout for quite some years on mono so no need for me to change. Good luck hope you get some nice ones.
