try using a different colour on the hooklength to your main rig body this really helps with untangling the tangles,i do this with my bomber rigs,bottom snood red and the top one some other colour,try it ,saves time.rig tangles will happen

i use a hi-vis leader at night and in the winter that way you can tell where your gear is in the surf if a fish is on,its just for visibility.summer when the waters are alot clearer i change over to a clear shockleader.doesnt make any difference ive found to my catch rate

been looking at the same stuff myself,but im not a lover of mainline thats too thin,i find the F1 18lb too thin for my liking (much prefer the F1 20lb),would it be worth me looking at the duo 20lb? quite an expense for something that i may come to regret

all the best
