    im using 60# breaded strong enough to get some decent size shark (3-5ft). also using lure line at the bottom, got 3 of them 40# and breaded them together myself to make it stronger. will this work or will the shark just snap this.

    If you are fishing in open water and not around bridges, bouys, lobster pots, or other things that can snag your line, 60# should work for under 10 footers. For sharks over 10 ft. or fishing around obstructions, I'd go up to 100# test. You should still use a 2ft or longer steel leader with that.
