I have the 12-20lb. Nothing wrong wth the Kenzakis. Do the job nicely for the price.

My "go to" set-up these days though is a 6-12lb Class Saltist Braid Special, paired with an Avet SXJ (in blue to match the rod 8) :lol: ). So sensitive, light and flexible, it's a joy to use all day drifting for Plaice, Bass and Turbot. Great on the Bream too and capable of landing the occasional Tope that tend to frequent the same haunts :)

Got my eye on a Excalibur braid 12-20lb. Don't think much of the guides on the the Saltist braid special, there tiny.

Each to there own. They were one of the attractions to me. And plenty strong enough for the intended application :)
