Aldi special buys


Recommended Posts

I bought some during their last promo. I got the 30 pound braid to try and thought it was good for the price. I used it at Awoonga and got a cm Barra no worries. I also got the 20 pound from aldi to compare with some 20 pound i had bought from a tackle shop and did a rough test on both where I rubbed them on the corner of a metal work bench. The aldi one was heaps harder to fray and break. It is certainly not a conclusive test but for braid at that price, why not?

i got some of that aldi braid last fishing sale .

its ok ,has caught fish .

been using aldi 17lb and 15 lb suffix .

only thing i noticed is when i had 3 rods out trawling ,and they all spun about and got tangled.

the aldi braid tangled worse then the suffix,so had ti cut it off .

where i could untangle the suffix.

the mono i got from aldi has a bad memory and is a bit of a pain but the longer i have had it on the rods and used it the better it gets .

i will get some more .cheap as chips ,and i need some lighter braid .:)

think i will get some braid ,tackle,some more lures and maybe one of there cheap over head rods .

No, I bought some Anaconda braid, not aldi. Mind you the anaconda braid, not impressed, it is the only braid I have ever had wind knot issues with.

Does it break easily as well?

The reason I ask is there was apparantly "a bad batch" of the stuff. We have replaced a few spools of clearly under preforming braid over the last month or so.
