Maxima® Line Maxi Spool
Been using 6lb maxima for over 30 yrs, I have dabbled in other new products but always seem to come back to the best mono available. I fish Minnesota and Ontario for Walleye and the abrasion resistance for fighting big fish and snags is simply amazing. Its castability and sensitivity for jigging is also excellent.

I have used several lines over the past 30 years and I have yet to find one that holds up as well as Maxima. I find the 8lb and 6lb both have the flexibility and the strength to outlast most of my fishing situations, cast-after-cast. The line does not become brittle after time, and recently I was snagged on a limb.The knot and line held firm, but the Owner hook bent upon release from the snag. I had P-line on another reel and it became brittle after 2 fishing trips. I LOVE Maxima line!

Maxima is always my top choice of line for any fishing conditions. I have used it for years when i lived in michigan and now i try to use it when i can in wyoming. I have used other brands because of my remote location where i live and have lost many fish because of it. I spooled up 2 poles and have been raking 4-10lb mackinaws in ever sense. I love this line and will order online and wait for the good stuff rather than buy inferior line again

Maxima Leader Diameter vs. Lb Test
Several years ago, a major fly fishing magazine tested leader lines by knot strength, lb breaking weight, diameter, etc. Maxima consistently tested stronger than rated on label because it measured a larger diameter than printed on label. Listed 6lb was actually 8lb, listed 8lb was actually 10lb, etc. In other words, they under-rate the line strength and diameter. Go one size down in Maxima to match other leader brands to equal aprox lb test.
Maxima is the leader material of choice with a fluorocarbon tippet for most steelhead and salmon anglers in the Great Lakes Region.
