Well the Oblivion turned up yesterday. "Looks" okay, nice colour, (went for the "silt" version which is a slightly lighter grey than the Technium Black), and slightly thinner at 0.35mm so hopefully it won't stand out as badly as the CM90 does.
Going to re-spool with it this weekend, will give it a good soak beforehand.
I won't fill the spools quite as much as I did with the CM90, fingers crossed it will behave itself a bit better.
Just got to hope that it sinks as well!!
Will report back with my findings after my session next Tuesday.

I am off to france in june and have some korda touchdown 20lbs as a back , as its a weedy lake, it has a thicker diametre .40 mm i think, casts will be mid range and i will put slightly less line on the spools if needed, maximum cast about 100 yards i reckon. Used the reels in france last year no issues

That's exactly how I'm fishing Keith. Short(ish) range and 1oz leads.
Might not get the problem if I go into a different swim where a longer cast is required??
Having said that, I'm going to ditch the CM90 anyway, I'm not overly impressed with how it sticks out like a sore thumb where it's entering the water.
Just bought a bulk spool of Kryston "Oblivion" to try out. Matt black in colour but the 15lb is slightly thinner diameter than both the CM90 or Technium. (0.35mm instead of 0.38mm). I'm hoping that might help sort out the coiling problem too and will cover me for France.
I notice that the ESP you're using is 0.37mm so the slightly thinner line might help.

You might find if fishing a known fishery that its most likely 15lb minimum

I just wanted to know does anyone use these reels on 12ft rods or are they just suited for stalking type rods as I've have seen people using casztems on 12 ft rods but they are more expensive reel feedback please

You are right in thinking that they only come with one spool.
And yes, cheapest you can find are 49.99.
Which is a bit of a pisser.....

Well, two trips out and I'm loving the reels, just not loving the way this particular line is performing on them.
It may just be a case that I've overfilled the spools.
They look "okay" but I'm getting problems with the line spilling off them and on one reel in particular it is actually getting up under the spool.
I might strip a bit off, to see if that helps????
I usually use Shimano Technium Black in 12lb but thought I'd give the CM90 a try in 15lb flavour. It's coiling up quite a bit, which doesn't look good!
Only problem I have is with a French trip on the horizon, do I trust the 12lb Technium over there? I've used it for donkeys years, and have the utmost faith in it on my "home" waters, but just concerned that with the bigger stamp of fish possible over there, will it be man enough???

tackle box line test

I don't trust breaking strain, if you download the chart on the linked page you'll see why. I generally go for monos around the .38-.41 mark

I recently spooled up two reels with Shimmy Black in 12lb..
Never used it yet..
Anyhow just looked at the remains on the 1100m. spool......hey..there is no dia. marked on it.
Was there outer packaging on the spools with the dia marked on ? I cannot remember, I still have the Perspex? shroud.
This is exactly why I still use b/s first then (maybe) look at dia.

My "usual" line is Shimano Technium Black both in 12 and 15lb.
I know that they are rated 0.32 and 0.38 respectively so that's the sort of diameter I'm looking for initially.
The CM90 is 15lb and 0.38 so I'm reasonably happy it's going to similar to the Technium.

Be 0.14 I would have thought.
Edit..that's wrong...be 0.40...just had to look at a spool of something.

I still initially go off B/S...then look @ dia.

How would you know what a 1/2" dia rope is rated for ...
Angling is different now...unfortunately I'm not ...too old...

0.04mm if memory serves me right.
I tend to go on diameter rather than quoted BS.
