So I've recently been using Sunline FC Sniper Fluorocarbon, but I've lost several good fish to line separated maybe after a kink. I don't know but I changed out one reel to Sunline Mono. Today line seperated. I use to use Big Game and never failed. I like fluoro but I'm threatening to go back to big game.

I use a bead on top of my weight that helps the bullet weight from wedging in lots of spots and one under the weight to keep the weight from pounding the knot. I never tried bobber stoppers.

I too have struggled with all the expensive lines on the market. I work too hard getting a good fish, to just lose it due to a bad knot, kink, or just a bad place in the line.

I've gone back to trilene big game and braid. the braid never seems to wear out, and if it does, just remove it and reverse it back on. the trilene big game is so cheap, I can change it often and still be out less money that most of the others.

Just my opinion, but I switched from flouro to Yo Zuri hybrid line. Very supple and I never notice any kinks. Seems to fish less ridgid than flouro. Good luck man.

I have had in the past people on my boat who continues to reel a lure or fish all the way to the tip after being told repeatedly not to, cutting an extra button off your shirt works great in a pinch for a bead to stop rod tip damage. Also can be used on the weight end for same.
