Gear Review: SpiderWire Dual Spool

WHAT IS IT?

SpiderWire Dual Spool

WHAT SETS IT APART?

Braided lines, with their extremely durable and incredibly sensitive nature, have had an undeniable impact on the bass-fishing world, but the highly visible nature often offsets the benefits. A braid-to-fluorocarbon setup provides the ultimate compromise for a variety of finesse and long-cast scenarios, but pairing the right diameters stands essential. Simplifying the selection, Berkley and SpiderWire have teamed up to offer properly paired spools of fluorocarbon and braid.

HOW DO I USE IT?

SpiderWire Stealth is packaged with the appropriate size Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon for efficient and dependable main line-to-leader knots. A more cost-effective option to buying braid and fluoro separately, this pairing includes a 125-yard filler spool of braid and a 25-yard pony spool of fluoro, which fits in shirt, jacket and pants pockets. Known for its strength and castability, Stealth Braid includes a coating that helps prevent reel dig-ins. Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon shock and abrasion resistance complement its invisibility.

ANGLER’S INSIGHT:

This is pure convenience, without compromise. Serious anglers typically disdain the thought of someone selecting their tackle for them. However, in this instance, SpiderWire packages commonly paired items for quick, efficient selection. On the novice level, this pairing makes it easy to grab and go. Another benefit: Gift buying for Christmas, birthdays and Father’s Day often find well-meaning loved ones confused and intimidated by vast tackle options. SpiderWire has simplified at least one element of the decision.
