  1. i had some of this line given to me but i really don't know anything about it. Does anyone have experience with this line and what are your comments.
    Thanks,
    Ron
     
  2. Ron,

    I'll preface this by saying I've never used Ironhead line. Fenwick is a subsidiary of Pure Fishing which encompasses Berkley, Stren, Spiderwire, Abu and others. I'd say chances are that it is made at the same place that one of the popular Berkley lines are, but I'm only speculating. "Ironhead" sounds remarkably close to "Ironsilk" made by Berkley, which got mostly poor reviews for its strength. I'm a fan of most of Berkley's lines (particularly Sensation and XT). Not sure I'd risk losing a big fish with a line I didn't know anything about...but that's me.

    They did make a line called ironthread . They stopped making it a few years ago. I liked it quite well on my spinning reels. Very small dia.
