    Maxima is my choice, sorry if you already know this , make sure your loading the line on the spool the correct way and use a spin doctor aswell.

    Sensor is one of the very best lines available, but you must put it on the reels correctly, and also make sure that you don’t over use the baitrunner (such as tackling up with it on instead of opening the bail arm as you see a lot of anglers do).
    Been using Sensor on a variety of reels for many years now and I have tried other lines and always reverted back to Sensor due to the other lines not giving me anything in return for the extra cash outlay.
    Simo, let me tell you one thing for 100% certainty. Fox Soft Steel & Camo come off the SAME machine as the Sensor does ;o)
