"I finally had a chance to give my S.A.S braid a good workout.
I was lucky enough to win a spool of 6lb so here are my pros and cons.
Pros.... Firstly it's super thin, very supple, ties good knots and lays on the spool well. I like the white colour to.
Cons.... Where I was fishing the water was super clear, because of this I like to use long leaders of 4-6 meters, so this means that when I cast the leader knot is on the spool. I found with the sas 6lb this caused me major problems. I had quite a few wind knots and a couple of massive catastrophes which required a cut off and a retie.
With the others braids I use I have never had this problem. I use a kaneit knot which is super slim and as I said has not given me trouble in the past.
I'm not 100% sure why this was happening but I suspect that due to the braid being so thin the knot was getting caught in it as it was coming off the spool.
However when casting with the knot off the spool it cast well although u would have assumed that it would cast much better that thicker lines but I felt it was pretty much the same distance wise as the other braids I use.
Overall I think it's a quality line at a great price but for the way I fish the 6lb is just to thin. I think I might get a spool of 10 or 12 and give that a go.
I would love to hear what u guys think of it.
