As this thread is a couple of months old i presume you are now fixed with the line steve?
if you are ever down Portishead way "reel fun" tackle shop down by the marina sell big game, they have a website but it's very limited to what they actually do sell, if you're ever down that way it's certainly worth popping in for a look around, i found it was a little gold mine, sells stuff that you can't get in B-A-C or Veals...

Yep Phil, sorted thanks. Although I haven't really had a chance to properly test it yet. I used the 8 and 10lb on my first two trips out, but blanked totally, so thought I'd scale down to 6 and 5lb lines (Korum Xpert and Reflo Power Max respectively - both absolutely brilliant) and it seems to have done the trick, at least in terms of catching.

The big game will most likely not get a proper test now until the pike season starts.
