Recommend a good line for me!

Recommended Posts

Well last weekend I ripped up my line on my prop on the last run. DOH! I've been riding a moderately priced proline. The line itself has been great, but I think the diamond patterned foam handle is a bit abusive on the hands. 

I also have this line: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OF926E
I stopped using it because the coated line tangles SO BAD every time it's pulled in. (so much for it being tangle-free). So I think I don't like coated lines, unless this one is just garbage because its cheaper. I use it as a backup now (like for this weekend now hah).

Ive been doing alot of riding now, so I'm actually ok with spending the big $$ if the ropes are better. I've been thinking about getting a Ronix 4.0, 5.5 or 6.0 combo. The handle looks so comfortable and inviting compared to the foam ones.

Any recommendations?

If I'm not mistaken, a lot of people on TMC love the airhead line.  With that being said make sure you are coiling your line correctly. The coated lines seem to exaggerate any misstep in the coling process.

You know, I've recently discovered the correct way to coil them. I'm sure this will help.
