Sunline Troutist 4lb Wild spinning line - no tippet

I was reading how Chris adds tippet to his hi-vis spinning line. I had a record day today fishing Sunline's Troutist 4lb Wild line tied directly to Crusader spoons (no tippet, no swivel ... just tied to the Crusader's split ring). Even though it was flat, slow water, nearly every cast produced a hit or a fish. I'm really happy with this line; it's a perfect match for my Tenryu Rayz Integral rod, Shimano Cardiff reel, and 2.5g Crusaders. I cast directly across the stream, let the Crusader sink for a 5 count, then slow-retrieved with an occasional twitch. The hi-vis line color doesn't seem to bother our SW Missouri trout. I think they are mesmerized by the Crusader!
