    Have you had a look at the Sinking Feeder Mono from Preston? I have never tried it yet but from the reviews, it seems pretty good
    Will be giving this a go when I go away in May hopefully

    I've always used Berkeley fireline for long distance feeder where allowed but maxima is very good. Stretches a lot so not the best at long distance but it will never let you down

    Tried fireline and fireline crystal and could never get on with them. I have to rule maxima out due to diameter and stretch. The Preston looks similar.

    Here's a Link Vid' on how to tie the best shockleader I've EVER seen & used.

    It's from a member of Forum (now defunct) I used to be on.

    I'm using the albright knot which I've used for years. I've only had one let go but that was about a year old!

    Yeah mate, but the one in the Video is tapered & because of that - passes through the rod rings smoother when casting.

    I think one failed knot due to my own negligence over a period of 20 years is a pretty decent record so have no plans on changing real soon. If you have any familiarity with the set-up I've described then you'll know why I have no problems with my leader knots. The knot is minuscule and the rings are big enough to use an adult jack Russel as a line threader.
