The Shimano Technium Invisitec line accompanied me this year when I was fishing for trout with the spinning rod. But I didn’t only use it there, I also used it for light spin fishing for perch and chub when fishing on the river. She was spooled on a Shimano 2500` Sedona reel. The reason why I usually don’t use braided rods for trout fishing and prefer monofilament fishing is quite simple, the lower visibility in the water and the better buffering effect for strong fighting fish. Especially with brown trout in smaller waters this is more important, because here the fish often bite at short distances.
To be honest, the first impression of a line is rather short. The packaging is relatively nice, but I don’t really care about that. I prefer a good product. The line looks relatively soft, but not too soft and for a monofilament it has rather little stretch, so it’s just right for spin fishing.
In the test
Here again I write a little less, because as an angler you don’t pay much attention to your line, although it is probably the most important thing next to the lure. I didn’t notice it negatively and there were only a few wigs, and if there were, it was because I fished without a swivel or because I wrapped the Sedona reel under the spool again. Of course the line has little to do with that. The line has always held while I used a 0.185 mm line for trout fishing. The bite detection was always good because of the low stretch and I was able to land my biggest brown trout this year with the line, what more do I want? Nevertheless I had a lot of thrill during the fight when I noticed that a good fighting fish was hanging on it. The abrasion resistance of the line also seems to be very good, so I used it for
iced rod rings right at the end of the trout season and for many jobs in very stony waters. I found this line to be perfect for light spin fishing, although it is also available in diameters up to 0.4 mm.
The line stays on my reel and continues fishing. Much more praise can hardly come from me, because I always like to optimize my fishing gear and change it quickly.
