BRAID VERSUS MONO VERSUS RECORDS & COMPS
The subject of braid captures and what constitutes the ‘line class’ or breaking strength of top shotted lines is guaran-teed to spark up a response around most cockpits. Our NZSFC Zone 2 Clubs are looking to table a proposed Fishing Rule for NZSFC adoption whereby, in simple terms, the mono top shot will be the ‘line class’, regardless of backing (braid or other) line strength. This is of course is on the basis that the Combined (ie joined) lines will break on the weakest one. This Rule, if ratified, will not apply to IGFA Record Claims until the IGFA also change their Rules to be in line with this thinking. The Zone 2 proposed Rule change will be on our website (newsletter section) shortly, please drop us a line at wwgfc@xtra.co.nz if you have feed-back for our Zone Delegates on this proposal.
