The Maver MV-R Power Reel Monofilament comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: high-performance monofilament reel line from Japan.

Specifications: a floating line sold on 150 m spools; diameters from 0.15 mm (5.51 lb) to 0.23 mm (12.13 lb); high abrasion resistance; virtually memory free; strong, soft and supple; waterproof; UV protected; translucent grey colour.

My verdict: ideal for commercial fisheries, this line looks like a useful choice for pellet waggler fishing for carp when the water warms up, even kerb crawlers down the edge on the running line.

It’s got potential on rivers, too, especially when targeting big fish on a float.

I would expect to see a few specialist anglers checking it out as well.

The grey colour might help it blend in better with its surroundings, as it is thought that sunlight can accentuate clear lines.

Price: £5.99.
