No, I don't care about IFGA rules, but was only pointing out when/if/why a "bite tippet" after a lower lb test tippet would "make sense" to someone.
For whatever egotistical, whatever, reason(s), some folks chase after these things, either for state for other records.
On the other hand, I could have won part of the local tackle shop's "Fall Derby" pool (which I had entered because it also gives you 4WD access to a larger portion of beach for the fall) with a 2 lb bluefish. Eh? Who needs the IFGA. Dont think a "bite tippet" would've even been needed
