Thanks. That ambush line looks very good. But the price is even higher than a rio line, which kinda puts me off.
I'm curious what you're paying for Rio. I'm seeing $79.95 for the Rio Outbound Short, which is the same as for the Ambush.

I have a couple of rio shorts and love them. I over line my stiff rods by one.

Check out the Royal Wulff Ambush.

The 8-weight has a 20-foot head. That will load the rod more quickly than more traditional tapers, i.e. bass tapers, meaning minimal false-casting.

I have glued pieces of foam together to make poppers.  Got some gasket punches from Harbor Freight
'to cut the poppers out.  If I shape them I got a small diameter screw and cut the head off.  Found this to hold the foam better for me.

Doesn't the screw leave too big of a hole through the foam? Do you build up the hook with thread?
Thanks,
Bruce

So i couldn't resist an ebay listing of a ross flystik #8. I will use it next to the minimag (still a great rod!).
I wanted to try something a bit lighter for smaller pike and some blackbass in France this august (tips on summer bass are welcome since i didn't manage to catch one last summer)

But the great dillemma ofcourse is; what line?

I am looking at Rio's outbound short, pike/musky line or  Airflo's bass/musky,  40+sniper. Other suggestions are more than welcome.

The one backcast,point and shoot minimag like casting applies :)

Any thoughts?

Many thanks,
Jasper

I have used corks for poppers with the technique Kirk suggested.  But I found that using flip-flops is easier.  I cut plugs from the flip-flops using different diameter pieces of copper tubing.  I have found that sharpening the copper tubing using my dremel makes the cutting a bit easier. 

I still make cork poppers too.  Just found that flip flops to be a bit easier and they come in a wide variety of colors.  I get mine at places like The Dollar Store.
