I've thought about using Stren Magnathin for Hard Jerkbaits and Soft Jerkbaits because it has a smaller diameter which will give the Jerks more action. (12lb test = 10lb diameter). My only concern is the stretch of the Magnathin. I've seen that most guys like no-stretch or braided type lines for the two types of Jerks. Does anyone know if Magnathin has much stretch? If it does or doesn't, should I go to a lower stretch type line like fluoro or braid anyways for the jerks???

It might be me but I think that braid is better for jerk baits than mono. I feel it works the lures better and the no strech part is very important with jerks, as you really need to set the hook hard on jerk baits. They are about the hardest bait to set a hook on. Mono just don't seem to get the job done for me. Bob
