Gamma Line

Recommended Posts

Tippman

There is some information on this site about gamma line but I think people have had more time to use it now. I'm looking into getting some, what do people using it think? What is the main difference between the copolymer and fluorocarbon? Are there applications where this line does not perform well?

I used it on all my spinning outfits last year and loved it..It does retain some memory but not terrible. The advantage I have found is what I used to use XL 10lb for I can use the 6lb Gamma and still be safe. I use it for mostly my jigging setups..It is not as invisible as the fluoro but not as much memory either..I am experimenting with the Suffix Elite now and in one outing for crappies I had some issues. Very low memory though..(the laker in my avatar came on 8# Gamma)

Gamma is all I use now. I put it on 2 of my reels a couple of years ago.. and last year went to all Gamma...

Its casts so much better and is tough!!!

the Coply/Floro debate is one that a book could be wrote about. The Floro is much more expensive about 3-5 times more expensive!... Its reflective index is very similar to water, so under water its near invisible. It stretches less than the coply, but is a bit stiffer. Floro sinks, and copoly floats. Flro is better with abriasion, and copoly is better at holding knots.

I use both for different situations!

All I use is Gamma. I use the Fluoro for Leaders. And the premium for everything from spinning to baitcast minus 1 or 2 rods with powerpro for slopping. Great line, very smaller diameter for the power. And the ratings of the lb test are much better to this versus other lines. Their 4lb breaks at 8.5lb........very nice.

Gamma's technology is very good. So good that Pure Fishing is racking there brains trying to match or find out how to compete with this technology. I used it last year and will have it on all my rods except for my muskie rods. It's so good they have a patent on there line so that alone must mean something. I was price shocked at first but if you look at the long term benefits it should gain you more life of the line and confidence of supperior knot strengh.

I can ditto everything said here. I have switched all my mono rods to Gamma. Very flexible and soft, yet very strong. I haven't experienced any problems with memory as some have mentioned.

I just picked up a spool of 6# and 4#, so far so good. I haven't used it much, but the stuff is strong. They still have the mail in for a buy 2 get one free.

This is great line!! I was an avid Trilene guy for years, until a friend of mine (Butch Furtman) introduced me to it. I have used it for two years now and continue to be impressed with its performance. It is stronger than standard mono and its castability is superb.

You can go to their web site and they can explain their technology process. This company has been around for a long time producing fly fishing products under the the label of "Frog Hair". They also produce the finest quality product for stringing tennis rackets. Professional tennis players use their product as the standard. Gamma knows how to produce quality products.

Try Gamma-- You won't be disappointed.

I too love my Trilene XT and XL but I scored some Gamma and have used it more and more the past year or so.

Well so far so good. The little bit I've used this line I really like it. I had to get a spool of each copoly and fluoro to compare them but haven't used enough yet to make a decision on which I like better.

Do you need to pick up the rebate form from the retail store? I checked online and it said something about filling out the "backside of this form" but I didn't see the backside of any form to fill out.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      Welcome back Fishandfowl! Congratulations on your bird. It seems like it has been a tough year for many. Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller? 
    • PSU
      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Looks good Cliff! The perch look mighty tasty!
