Cenex Hybrid Power Mono

Cenex Hybrid Power Mono

Cenex Hybrid Power Mono has become a firm favourite for pole anglers for their pole rigs and hook lengths. 

I’ve been using it for many years and it really is a reliable, abrasion resistant, ultra strong line that just won’t let you down. Although is strength in relation to its diameter is amazing there are a few other qualities that I love, the first being just how supple it is which creates perfect hook bait presentation. This suppleness also allows knots to be bedded down resulting in unbelievable knot strength and being transparent it just adds to the list of benefits and reasons why when it’s used more fish end up in the net!

Coming on 100m spools it really is value for money and a line that all anglers need to check out.

Available in seven popular diameters –

0.10mm 3lb/1.37kg

0.12mm 3.7lb/1.7kg

0.14mm 5.6lb/2.55kg

0.16mm 6.6lb/3kg

0.18mm 8.5lb/3.9kg

0.20mm 9.2lb/4.2kg

0.22mm 10.3lb/4.7kg

Cenex Method Mono 2

Cenex Method Mono

Cenex Method Mono

One of my favourite mainlines in the Cenex range is the Method Mono. It’s a specialist camou-coloured Co-Polymer reel line, super abrasion resistant with limited stretch and sinks like a plummet!

I use this when I’m fishing the method and know the action is going to be fast and furious from numerous big fish as this reel line really can take everything I can throw at it. 

A really dependable, strong, reliable competition mainline that’s can take loads of abuse but equally as popular with the specialist big fish angler who wants their line to be as inconspicuous as possible.

cenex low stretch mono 1

Cenex Low Stretch Mono

Cenex Low Stretch Mono 

Cenex Low Stretch Mono is a brilliant alternative to using braid as it offers many of the advantages that braid provides and allows an angler an in-between to both allowing them to see if switching from mono to braid is for them. It’s also brilliant if you are on a venue where braid is banned, especially if you’re fishing at distances and need to exaggerate bites.

Specifically designed for feeder fishing this ultra low pre-stretched reel line is extremely abrasion resistant has a smooth surface that aids both line lay on the reel and effortless casting at distance. 

In contrast to mono all bites will be massively exaggerated, especially useful for shy biting fish such as roach and skimmers.

Available in four diameters on 150m spools –

0.14mm – 4.60lb

0.16mm – 5.80lb

0.18mm – 6.90lb

0.20mm – 8.50lb

cenex feeder braid 1

Cenex Feeder Braid Sinking

Cenex Feeder Braid Sinking

I first starting using this braided reel line on the vast windswept venues in Ireland. When the weather took a turn for the worst trying to spot bites using mono was almost impossible; however a switch to braid completely changed things and distinguishing between what was a proper bite and simply the waves crashing over the rod tip became easy.

This braid has a low diameter and a consistent round profile making it great for loading onto the spool and casting long distances effortless. Another massive advantage is it contains a Teflon strand making it sinks straight off the spool, no wetting or bedding in needed and with zero stretch bite detection is second to none. 

This really is a superb bullet proof braid ideal on big venues or when the elements are against you and every edge possible is needed to combat the conditions and put more fish in the net.

Available in three diameters on 150m spools – 

0.08mm – 10.00lb

0.10mm – 12.00lb

0.12mm – 15.00lb

Guide to Cenex Lines

Guide to Cenex Lines

The ever popular Cenex lines such as Classic Mono, Hybrid Power Mono and the fantastic Fluoro Carbon Hook Line are often raved about and reviewed, yet there is so much more to the growing Cenex range than just these, if fact there are four more, Feeder Braid Sinking, Low Stretch Mono, Method Mono and Feeder Mono, all of which I use on a regular basis and are such great mainlines.

Let’s take a closer look and discuss when and where I use them and where they could compliment your fishing and increase your catch rate.

Cenex Feeder Braid Sinking

I first started using this braid when fishing the matches in Ireland, often on big windswept venues where conditions at times couldn’t get much worse. The reason being was I needed a mainline that sunk, withstood the constant crashing of waves around the rod tip bit most importantly gave me instant bite detection. It gave me a massive advantage over using mono and is my first choice when fishing large venues for big fish such as bream. It has a lovely round profile which loads well on the spool and great for casting long distances. It really is a superb zero stretch feeder fishing braid which sinks straight from the spool so no bedding in needed, is extremely strong and has an exceptional fine diameter.

Available in three diameters on 150m spools –

0.08mm 10lb

0.10mm 12lb

0.12mm 15lb

cenex feeder braid

Mono/braid? Can’t make your mind up? Try this.  

cenex low stretch mono

My go to reel line on big venues. 

Cenex Low Stretch Mono

This mainline is a great for the angler that doesn’t feel comfortable using a braided mainline but understands its advantages and needs an in between option. I use this line on venues where braided mainlines are banned as it’s pre-stretched, creating an ultra-low stretch mono that boosts bite detection. Many use this when fishing at distance as it’s an easier-to-use alternative to braid and its low diameter, abrasion resistance and smooth surface fishing all heighten the experience. 

Available in four diameters on 150m spools –

0.14mm 4.60lb

0.16mm 5.80lb

0.18mm 6.90lb

0.20mm 8.50lb

Cenex Method Mono

This specialist Co-polymer reel line is one I use when I know it’s going to take some beating, such as bagging bigger than average carp from a commercial. It really is a dependable line that cuts through the surface tension and immediately sinks. An added advantage is its camou-coloured, great for the match or specimen angler that needs to be as inconspicuous as possible and once again its fine diameter and super soft feel make it a mainline to be reckoned with. 

Available in four diameters on 150m spools –

0.20mm 8.10lb

0.22mm 10.40lb

0.24mm 12.80lb

0.26mm 15.00lb

Hit the horizon with this one.

One for some serious punishment.

Cenex Feeder Mono

If you’re looking for a quality, medium-stretch, sinking mono for feeder fishing then this is the one. Its special smooth surface seal increase casting distance, improves the retrieve and is highly abrasion resistant so it’s up taking some serious punishment. Being very supple it’s also become very popular with anglers fishing the waggler at medium to long distances and I’ve used it to great effect fishing the slider in really deep venues!

Available in eight diameters on 150m spools –

0.14mm 4.00lb

0.16mm 5.00lb

0.18mm 6.00lb

0.20mm 7.40lb

cenex fluoro carbon line 1

Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line

Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line

Modern day fishing lines have come on tremendously over the past few years and fluorocarbon is certainly one that has got better with time. When first introduced to the world of fishing some were OK but many were really poor, especially when it came to knot strength and if you happened to buy a poor one, well you are probably still somewhat sceptical now. Well you don’t have to be, especially if you decide to choice Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line as this is simply outstanding. 

Probably the most interesting part about Fluorocarbon is what’s known as its ‘Refractive Index’ which means once submerged in water it becomes almost invisible, obviously a massive edge when it comes to bait presentation. This is obviously a massive edge when it comes to getting more bites yet not all fluorocarbons are what is known as supple unlike Cenex which offers not only this but abrasion resistance, durability, high knot strength as well as an amazing fine diameter to knot strength. Something to consider is being transparent and supple means that you can use a thicker, higher breaking strain than before so if a rogue carp comes along then they can be tamed that much quicker. 

Another point to mention is not all fluorocarbon diameters are actually what’s stated on the spool, but then how many anglers actually get a micrometer to it and measure it, not many! I have and not only does this line mic up accurately its consistent throughout the spool.

Originally available in four sizes Browning have listened to their team of match anglers singing its praises and have now added a further five diameters ranging from 0.07mm (1.1lbs) to 0.23mm (10.2lbs) to the range.  

Available in the following diameters –

0.07mm 1.1lbs

0.09mm 1.87lb

0.11mm 2.7lb

0.13mm 3.5lb

0.15mm 4.6lb

0.17mm 6.5lb

0.19mm 7.6lb

0.21mm 8.7lb

0.23mm 10.2mm

If you aren’t using this for your hook lengths and leaders then you are really missing out.

black magic gold line 1

Black Magic Gold Mono

Black Magic Gold Mono

Finding a reliable, affordable multi-purpose monofilament mainline isn’t always easy. We all have our favourites and it’s really difficult to switch in fear of it letting us down at that vital moment, yet after being introduced to the Black Magic Gold line by an all-round angler who had total faith in it I just had to pick up a few spools in different diameters and give it a go.

Taking a closer look I was amazed at its fine diameter in ratio to its breaking strain, 6.60lb being just 0.19mm!

Spooling up I could feel its smoothness and the line lay was perfect with no curling something many low diameter lines are prone to. Putting the 0.19mm diameter through its paces for the first time whilst fishing the method for medium sized carp was a complete joy and although a couple momentarily found an underwater hazard a bit of extra pressure saw them turn away and on inspection of the line no damage was found showing its outstanding strength and abrasion resistance. 

Next to try was the 0.17mm diameter which has a breaking strain of 4.40lb. This was loaded onto my Black Magic FD 420 for a spot of float fishing on the river Test. Whilst long trotting the line pealed of the spool as expected, really smoothly and when that all important bite came the line picked up really easily off the water and with its moderate stretch the hook was set instantly. At the end of the day and after numerous battles with hard fighting chub the line showed no signs of wear proving this is a multi-purpose line that’s up there with the best and since those first tentative tests I can say that I’m really impressed with its performance.

Available in five convenient breaking strains ranging between 4.50lb and 12.60lb (0.27mm) I can see this mainline becoming a big hit, not just for match anglers but with specimen anglers as well.

Available on convenient bulk spools in – 4.5lb, 6.6lb, 8lb, 9.6lb and 12.6lb breaking strains.   

Colin Sheppard

The bulk spools of Black Magic Gold line are great value.

This is a really tough line, ideal for feeder fishing.

The brown colour blends in well with most lake beds.

hybrid mono 2

Cenex Hybrid Power Mono

Cenex Hybrid Power Mono

Cenex lines have grown rapidly in popularity with match anglers since there launch and there’s a reason for this, they are simply lines that you can rely on. 

My favourite for my pole rigs is Cenex Hybrid Power Mono, just check the diameter and you will find them to be true and accurate and it’s extremely strong and abrasion resistant, yet it’s remarkably supple allowing perfect bait presentation and never kinks.

Originally available in five popular sizes however due to popularity and demand two new sizes have become available, 0.10mm which is exceptionally strong for its fine diameter and brilliant for targeting silvers and skimmer. The 0.22mm is ideal for the carp match angler putting big weights together and needs a line that simply won’t let him down. 

Is there a better line for pole rigs and hook lengths, well if there is I don’t know about it!

Cenex Hybrid Power Mono is available in the following diameters –

0.10mm 1.37kg/3.00lb 

0.12mm 1.70kg/3.70lb

0.14mm 2.55kg/5.60lb

fluoro carbon line 1

Why Use Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line?

Why Use Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line?

Fluorocarbon lines have really caught on in recent years, thanks to their unique properties that make them useful in some situations, especially when feeder fishing. 

At first glance, fluorocarbon looks no different to a clear nylon, but there are some differences. Fluoro’ is much harder than nylon, giving it more abrasion resistance. It also resists kinking and twisting, which reduces the hook length from spinning up on the retrieve.

Fluoro has a higher density than nylon, so it sinks faster and tends to lay flat on the bottom – ideal of feeder fishing. It is also almost invisible in water, although this is probably more important when float fishing, or catching fish on the drop, than it is when the hook length is against the Lake bed. 

You can use most standard knots that you would use with nylon with fluoro’. One benefit is that you only need to make one pass through the eye of a hook or swivel to get high knot strength, compared to two turns with nylon. A single turn beds down better and tends to cause less ‘pig-tailing’ when the knot is tightened. 

Whilst it might be a little more expensive than nylon, fluorocarbon is a really useful material that can make a difference whether you are targeting roach on the drop, or feeder fishing for big barbel. 

Cenex Fluoro Carbon Hook Line is available in the following diameters:

0.07mm – 0.5kg / 1.1lb

0.09mm – 0.85kg / 1.87lb

0.11mm – 1.25kg / 2.7lb

0.13mm – 1.6kb / 3.5lb

0.15mm – 2.1kb / 4.6lb

0.17mm – 2.95kg / 6.5lb

0.19mm – 3.45kg / 7.6lb

0.21mm – 3.95lb / 8.7lb

0.23mm – 4.65lb / 10.2lb
