I use 15# braid on them. If I'm going for something larger, I pull out the trusty Shimano TLD 25's on 6' 40# rods with 30# mono spooled and 45' or so 30# flouro tipper.
    Which St. Croix? I'm using a 6'6" medium-heavy, fast action St. Croix Tidemaster with an Abu Garcia Record with 30lb braid.

    I have 4 Triumphs all the same med-heavy and fast action. They're about 5 years old, St. Croix's lower end but still perform and hold up better than most rods twice their price IMO.

    How does the suffix compare to PP in terms of wind knots? It's a bit more expensive, right?

    Isn't the Suffix a round-wound braid? I use PP also, but my buddy just got some round-wound (I think it's suffix) and that stuff is awesome!

    Early run king salmon numbers are WAY down in southcentral AK - more people than fish - but there are a few of 'em out there (like this 60 pounder caught 2 days ago on the Deshka).
