    FWIW, I was under the impression that 70 denier was closer to 8/0 than 6/0. 140 denier would be the 6/0 equivalent.
    Am I wrong on this?

    I can't tell you why it breaks, but I can tell you that if you let all all the torque out of the thread before starting the whip, it will be less likely to break when you pull it tight.

    Ernie,

    I think you're going to be under-gunned. I've generally fished for smallies with a 6 weight and for LM with an 8 weight.
