    Jerry Brown Line Spectra Fishing Line Buyer's Guide: How To Select Jerry Brown Braided Spectra Fishing Line


    Jerry Brown Spectra Braided Fishing Line is made from Spectra Fibers. The use of Spectra on fishing lines has revolutionized fishing lines as we know them. Unlike monofilament, Jerry Brown Spectra Fishing Line has zero stretch, and excellent abrasion resistance. The lack of stretch makes Jerry Brown the ideal fishing line for setting hooks in deep water, this is why it has rapidly become the number one choice for spooling Kristal, Dolphin, and other electric reels for deep drop fishing applications. In addition, Jerry Brown Spectra Fishing Line is used for offshore deep sea big game sport fishing applications, when species such as Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, Dolphin aka: Dorado, Mahi Mahi, and Swordfish are sought. The lack of stretch allows for quick setting of the hook. When used with circle hooks, Jerry Brown Spectra Fishing Line facilitates the release of Sailfish, Marlin, and Swordfish boat side.

    Jerry Brown Line One Spectra Braided Fishing Line falls into two categories:

    *  Jerry Brown Hollow Core Spectra Braided Line

    *  Jerry Brown Non-Hollow Line Spectra Braided Line

    Selecting Hollow vs. Non-Hollow Jerry Brown Fishing Line

    Jerry Brown Hollow Core is more expensive than it's counterpart, Non-Hollow, therefore it is important to have an understanding of what application the line is going to be used for. First and foremost it is important to understand that Jerry Brown Hollow Core is NOT flat! Most anglers picture Hollow Core as a flat line. In actuality, Jerry Brown Hollow Core Line is round, and may be tied through the use of the Uni-Knot or the San Diego knot. The advantage of hollow core is that it may be spliced through the use of threading, loop splicing, and reverse latch needles. Daho Products of Idaho specializes in these needles, and they feature a vast selection of sizes for your specific application.

    Jerry Brown Hollow Core's main advantage is it's ability to be spliced. As we all know the weakest link in fishing is knots, as well as terminal tackle. The use of hollow core eliminates the need for knots. In addition, Jerry Brown Hollow Core may be opened with a loop needle, and monofilament, wire, or fluorocarbon may be inserted inside to create a wind on leader. Loops may also be created to attach terminal tackle, such as ball bearing swivels and snaps when needed. Another advantage is the line to line splice, which allows the angler to add line to a spool without using a knot. This is of particular interest to anglers who deep drop the depths for bottom species such as tile fish, snapper, wreck fish, grouper, as well as daytime swordfish. In cases where 100 or 200 yards of line is cut off, Jerry Brown Hollow Core allows the angler to splice in the line without a knot. In the long run this provides a cost savings because the entire reel does not have to be re-spooled. Longevity of Spectra braided lines greatly exceeds the life of monofilament nylon lines. Jerry Brown Spectra fishing lines will last for years. And NO, it does not have to be "cleaned"! Once the line is on the reel, normal reel care will suffice.

    Jerry Brown Non-Hollow Fishing Line is less expensive, because it is non-hollow it is not spliceable, therefore all connections are done using traditional methods. I recommend Jerry Brown Non-Hollow Spectra line for use on fishing kite reels, spinners, and for applications where the use of hollow core does not merit the extra expense.

    Jerry Brown Fishing Lines are available in the following colors: White, Hi-Vis Yellow, Green, and Blue. Spool sizes range from 150 to 2500 yard spools. Line sizes range from 10 LB Test to 200 LB Test, Hollow Core is only available in 60 through 200 LB Test. There are larger sizes available, however due to line diameter and the resulting spool sizes, these are best ordered via phone (954) 263-6177.

    How To Spool Jerry Brown Line One Spectra On Your Fishing Reel


    Corrosion Prevention:
     
    Unlike other fishing lines braides Spectra┬« line has a very long useful life, years, unless damaged.  Whiles Spectra fibers are unable to cause reel corrosion, salt can. Contrary to popular belief, spools made of aluminum are not corrosion proof, aluminum can pit. When it comes to anodizing, the process often is more for looks than for longevity in regards to corrosion resistance.  To protect your aluminum spools, it is a good idea that you wax and buff the empty spool with carnuba wax before putting the line on. Waxing the surface of the spool, and the spool body, provides added protection. A quality wax will seal the porous surface of aluminum, providing protection against salt penetration, and the corrosion that will follow. 

    Commencing the spooling process:  

    Before starting, make sure that you have a freely rotating spool of line and that there are no under wraps. An under wrap can create a major problem, creating a pseudo drag that will create sufficient friction to break the line, as well as "digging" into the spool, eventually getting stuck, and resulting in line breakage. Once the process has commenced, if the above error is not corrected immediately, the result will be wasted line, and the process will have to be re-started. If you are 20 yards into the process, no biggie, but if you are into it for a couple of hundred yards, you have a totally different situation.

    The best way to prevent the under wrap issue, is to assure that an under wrap is not present. This is accomplished by  removing a portion of the line from a spool, and then taping the end of the remaining line to the side of the spool so that an under-wrap is less likely the next time you take line from that spool. If you have a free lining spool, then an under wrap is not an issue. Making sure before you start the process, is by far the most correct, safest, and most advisable method.

    Line Slippage:

    Contrary to popular belief, braided Spectra line will not slip. When the line is tied correctly to the spool, braided Spectral line will grip the spool tightly. The use of a uni-knot, or San Diego knot, will assure a tight grip of the Spectra unto the reel. Always leave a long tag end when completing the knot. The tag end can then be laid across the arbor. Once the tag end is in proper position, spool the first layer of spectra using a close side by side technique, using about 6 LBS of tension. This will wind the line tightly, and slippage will not occur. Once you do this, pull on the line, and you will see that the line will not slip.

    Excessive criss-crossing must be avoided. Criss crossing creates voids, which eventually causes the line to "dig in". Spectra line may be spooled when dry or wet, as it makes absolutely no difference in the tightness of the spooling, nor does doing it wet prevent any issues. Wet line makes it more difficult to apply the necessary tension needed to provide tight spooling. This obviously occurs due to slippage when the tension is applied. Should you wish to use the wet line process, use fresh water. The last thing you want is to have salt exposure from the bottom up.

    Line winding machines:

    The most important thing to remember when using a line spooler is speed. The use of high speeds will create more friction, friction generates heat. As we all know, heat and plastics are not the best of friends. When spooling Spectra, if you have a 2 speed reel, use the lower gear, it will be a slower spooling, however it will generate less friction, and less heat. When spooling Spectra braided lines, you can't be in a hurry. Cutting corners, will surely result in disaster.

    One issue that is important to prevent is the bunching of line on the sides of the spool. When spooling, make sure that the line is even from side to side. When the line bunches up on the sides of the spool, a total nightmare can result when a fish is hooked and line payout is quick. Such an event can cause the line to bind, increasing the drag, and eventually locking down, the line breaking, or the rod and reel coming clear out of your hands. 

    Due to the different Spectra colors, when done using an electric line winding machine, one should clean and blow off the colored dusts that will be left over after a reel is spooled. Not doing so, may inadvertently add color to your line that it never had!

    Line Measurement: Line Counters 

    The accuracy of line counters vary greatly. Depending on the mechanism, those that rely on a positive gear drive provide for good accuracy, while those that have a wheel that rides the spool that contains the line your purchased, DO NOT. Wheels slip, and during that slippage, yards come and go. While this is of concern to those who retail line, this is not a major concern to the end user. A full reel is afterall, a full reel. Counters which use the wheel, tend to be less accurate when higher spooling speeds are used. 

    Completion!

    Once the process is complete, the line on your reel should feel "tight", hence a solid feel to it. If it feels soft, or "squishable" that is not good. Line that doesn't have the solid feel to it, will dig, and disaster will soon follow. To avoid this, one should apply the necessary tension during the spooling process.

    One of the best techniques to apply tension to the spool is by using a a knitted glove and using that to apply tension to the line, as it is going into the spool. The hand with the knitted glove is placed on the line that is being spooled onto the reel, not on the plastic spool that the line came in. Those using the 2 person method, may have the 2nd person that is holding the plastic spool apply pressure to the sides of the spool, while holding the rod or axle that the plastic spooling is rotating on. 

    Spooling Spectra line onto the reel is the first and most important step in assuring the performance, reliability, and longevity of Spectra braided fishing line. Paying close attention to this important process, will assure that your Jerry Brown Spectra Fishing Line will provide you with a long and trouble free life.

    Splicing Monofilament Line onto Hollow Core Spectra:

    Here is a basic ratio of hollow core Spectra line class to monofilament line class. This guide may be used to determine which size hollow core you need to splice the line class monofilament you wish to use for your wind on leader. Please note that monofilament line diameters vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, therefore the guide below is based on average monofilament diameters:

    For 40 LB test Hollow Core you may use 10 LB test, but not more than 25 LB test mono

    For 60 LB test Hollow Core you may use 20 LB test, but not more than 100 LB test mono

    For 80 LB test Hollow Core you may use 40 LB test, but not more than 130 LB test mono

    For 100 LB test Hollow Core you may use 40 LB test, but not more than 130 LB test mono

    For 130 LB test Hollow Core you may use 60 LB test, but not more than 200 LB test mono

    For 200 LB test Hollow Core you may use 80 LB test, but not more than 300 LB test mono
