    Big perfection loop, leave around 3 inches of tag end uncut. Done.

    Looks a bit strange and you usually get few comments from people thinking you've done something wrong but the tag end folds back nice and smoothly when the loop hits the rod rings. Give it a try with a wee spare bit if you have some left over...

    thanks Riverman
    Sorry for the delay riverman. I use 30lb. Have no problem with it.You do get the odd tangle with it but no more than any of the branded running lines. It will start to kink but I usually get six months to a year before I have to chop of 20 yards. As pointed out on other posts it casts well so sometimes the head is out before the running line can create enough resistance to turn over the head. All I do is make sure the line hits the reel on the forward cast and it turns everything over fine. In fairness I only fish the big rivers and this set up does me fine. On a smaller river you probablr don't need a distance shooting head.

    I now take back what I said about amnesia! I am now using the 40lb b.s. black amnesia and finding it great! I give it a stretch every now and again and had no problems with tangles and if you leave enough of it trailing in the water it helps to turn over my shooting heads and skagits` fine.
