Had a few bad batches of 5lb line (Think they were bad) where the line would snap under very little pressure, so now I dont fish any mono under 7lb, just more comfortable with it... Still .21 is very light  :hehe:

that web ref I PM'd you - the guys seem to use trout fishing tippet lines - because they come in varied breaking strains in the lower numbers

Looks great !
I have the 7ft Berkley Tactix and I love it.

Maxima ultra green comes in 4 and
6 lbs...

If you really want to go that small and micro fish go 4 lbs.

Nice Homes... I should probably do that, if I go less than 7lb mono, I would like to try some 2lb or 4lb braid, what do you think?
