I have never used 2lb test, smallest Ive used it 4lb test, and it was that trilene XL smooth casting stuff, I would think it would be strong in the 2lb test as well.

Just getting ready for this weekend. I will be trying to break a new light line class record. When I was on the Mighty Mo I lost a really good fish at the boat that should easily break it. The good thing is this type of fish is normally their own worst enemy when it comes to re-catching them and itís not a SMB or LMB.... Dad and I thought it was around 3lbs. Plus, I will be hitting a farm pond that is notorious for large Gills. The guy that owns it has been catching a few around the 1.5-2lb range, and a bunch over 10Ē. The nice thing is heís building another pond solely for Blue Gills and is installing a 24 hour fitness in for them, canít wait to see that place next year.

when icefishing i have used:
trilene micro ice 2lb, av. diameter .0053
tectan premium plus 3.1 lbs av dia .0039
tectan Premuim plus 5.1 lb ave dia .0055
seaguar carbon ice 4lb ave dia .007
trilene always feels strong, tectan is thinner and casts best but rocks kill it.
the carbon ice really stood up catching a coupla 17 in plus bass thru the ice last winter. I just love trilene xl 4lb for tippet catching carp on flyrod my largest on fly rod was 33 inches about 13 lbs at oak lake in the late 1980s
luck in all endeavours

I don't know for sure but don't think braid line count for a light line record. You do have to submit 25 feet of the line used to catch the fish....

Bob don't you have to use a certified line when fishing for line class records?

I think if you were trying to get a light line record the test would have to be 2lb not the diameter... so you'd still need 2lb test powerpro, atleast thats what I though...

Any application submitted for a line class record must include a portion of the line used in capturing the fish (the first 25 feet for applications submitted to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame). That line is then tested to determine exact strength of the line. It does not make any difference what kind of line it is. Keep in mind that lines may NOT test out at the same strength as the label says; you may think you have 4-pound test when you submit an application, but after testing of the line it may actually end up being a stronger line and thus a different line class.

powerpro 10/2 would still be 10 lb test line not 2 lb test. Now if they made some 2 or 4 lb test powerpro that would be some thin stuff,I would like to have some!

I use polar line in 2 and 3 lb tests on my ice gear and on one ultralight that I use for gills,etc. what true lb test it actually is,who knows!

I have 5/1 Powerpro on an ultralight that I cast 2" Yo Zuri Pin's Minnows. Works great.

Wow,do you guys even read the posts?:wRazzing:,I think alot of you don't or you would realize that the gentleman is looking for a true 2 lb. test break strenth line:icon_rolleyes:. Or maybe you go around telling people that you caught your fish on 2 lb test when it is actually 10 lb test:pandl:? the diameter of the line doesn't mean crapola when it comes to break strenth.

Yep, just sent a PM to a man on this forum that hold a few of these records, and a pointy head guy too. Hopefully they can help out. Thanks for the bump playin4funami.
