Default Microlead for trolling tube 'n worms

Does anyone here have experience with Tuf Line MicroLead? They have a 27 lb that I'm thinking about putting on a pair of smaller levelwinds to be used for tube 'n worm and umbrella rig trolling. I like the idea that I can use smaller reels to get an entire backing/10 colors/topshot setup.

No experience, but very interesting stuff. Looks like 27lb Tuf Line microlead is equivalent to 0.611mm, which is less than a competitor's 18lb leadcore (0.76mm). Good to see that they are finally improving leadcore with braid technology.

I just spooled 100 yards of the 27# each on a couple of boat rods w/ older Penn GT (318 I think) reels. Stuff looks nice - we'll so how it fishes.

I hate lead/wire and have been stubbornly trolling with big cannonballs recently. This is what I grew up doing in Maryland, but it doesn't cut it rocky NE.

I would love to hear the results with this Microlead... I love me some Lead Core or I should say I like the results.
