Line broke at TX 44 planar board


Recommended Posts

My Church's TX44 planar board had a mono line break while pulling 8 cores - fish likely hit it.  I had added a black line clip after the Church's one broke.  I thought the 17 lb mono was ok.

Have others seen this?

On the next TX44 should I get the $22 yellow LOCK JAW clip they advertise?   Pretty expensive to lose the whole darn set up.

I run a braid backer 50#, then about  20-30 feet of 40# mono, then connect my copper or leadcore line with leader to follow.  I always attach my tx44 board to 40# mono.  Never had a problem with a break-off running that set up for 6 years.
