Historically I've always used Maxima Chameleon as mainline in heavier breaking strains (7lb and above) and never had any problems, but I've read far too many comments that have questioned its consistency in recent years, which has put some doubt in my own mind. And, I must admit, the relatively high memory was getting on my nuts a bit as well. So, I'm looking to try something else and, for similar money and general reviews, Big Game seems to be the front runner (please note I have...a history with Daiwa Sensor). But I do have one question - many people comment about how large the diameter is when compared with other brands, but is that just down to Berkley understating the actual breaking strain (i.e. the 8lb is actually 10lb, the 10lb 12lb, etc), or is it actually thick for what it is? I can handle the former, but if it's the latter I'll need some convincing... Thanks all.
