What do you guys think about Shamino BaitRunners? I have a couple 6500s - nothing better than hearing them scream out when a bass takes the chunk!

Are you tying plugs direct to the fireline or going through a mono or flourocarbon leader? If going through a leader, does the knot hang up on the rod eyes?
