Is the new " Marked " wire reliable?. Looks like it was marked every 50 feet with some kind of composite.Saw it in the shop, what a great idea. All of my wire line the marks always fall off, or gets caught up in the roller top. Has anyone used the stuff yet?

Ok, this is the deal. Marlin has a
" Pre Marked " line on the market.

I just bought the stuff, its marked every 50 feet. It was in my local shop for $17.99 for 300/50lb @40lb.

I will use, and post a report on how it holds up, as we all know..the guides start out perfect, weeks later...one gone, two gone..next thing your markerless.

I see by the views, Im not alone with this problem.

I fish wire on private boat, 4 or more times a week, looking forward to this everending problem.

Thanks for all your help...

CaptNiel,

Feel free to E-mail, I would like to try some new ideas with deep water trolling rods.

I had built this year, two Altenkirk with carbide guides 7ft, aftco butts, use Penn 113 H/S. Very typical setup.

Despite the fact that wire is not as sporting, it does produce fish. Off of Montauk, with the ledges at 29, to 44 feet..with tremendous currents, I have found wire to be the solution, for pulling fish up, appears to be the only way off of Montauk, other than live bait.

We should go out someday, or I will try some new ideas, and rods.

There must be an answer. I even rembemer a article in the other mag, about braid being used to go deep, tried this but could not get down. I think that I have to get a huge spool of Power Pro 50, put on like 600..I figure it was 5 feet for every 100, gave up in the middle of the experiment.

Do you have any ideas?, or any of your viewers?

Capt. Neil:

Have used, bought..and concluded that the new " marked " wire is a reliable, good product.

Marlin put's it out, it comes in 40 lb test..and 50 lb. The guides are little plastic marks, that dont move, slide or otherwise.

It comes in 300 ft lengths, good for almost all of your readers. I actually perfer 400 ft ( I use a swivel to connect the extra 100 ft ), to hit 35 to 38 ft ledges off Montauk. But for all who use wire, a solution has arrived for this nagging problem.
