Which fishing magnets should you buy
You have heard about magnets fishing and want to try it, but which magnet fishing magnets should you buy, and which rope is the best for magnet fishing? On this page, you can get all the answers, and luckily magnet fishing is not an expensive hobby.
You only need two things to have the basics.
First, you need a strong magnet with a hole in it, I suggest that it can pull at least 50 kg/ 110 lbs the other thing you need is a rope.
Rope for magnet fishing has to have a tensile strength of at least the same as your magnet.

One of my magnets You need a strong magnet you are able to attach the rope to.
I did the beginner mistake and thought that a 110 lbs / 50 kg magnet was more than enough to start with.
To be honest, it couldn't lift that much and I lost many things.
Therefore, I highly advise you to buy a strong magnet even though it is your first one.
Just remember, that to be able to use the magnet for magnet fishing, it should have a hole or an eye.

Depending on the magnet you have you need some rope.
First time I was fishing with small magnets I used a fishing line that had a tensile / breaking strength of 6 kg.
But if you have a 110 kg strong magnet, a fishing line is useless in the fight of a heavy object, unless it is a really strong line!!! The white rope you can see in the picture is just a normal clothesline.
and up to this day I haven't caught anything which caused it to break.
When I go magnet fishing, I use that rope of the weakest magnet I have, which can carry 55 kg / 110 lbs The black and orange rope you see is Paracord.
It is a nylon rope used for parachuting.
It has a minimum tensile / breaking strength of 550 lbs ~ 250 kg.
It has a core of 7 strands which makes it extremely strong and durable.
I bought 2 x 100 ft.
As you can see I have divided the orange rope into 2 x 50 ft because I often fish in shallow waters.
The colors don't matter at all, but I think the orange rope is easier to find if it breaks at you have to dive into the water to retrieve your magnet.
This braided Honeywell Spectra line has a tensile strength of more than a 1000 lb, almost no stretch and is UV resistant.
It is actually designed for spearguns so it is made for water and is cut and abrasion-resistant as well.
Read More Here This Paracord is 300 lb stronger than the normal Paracord and is made by a US government certified contractor.
Paracord has a low weight compared to its high strength.
At the same time, the rope cannot rot, which means it is perfect for use in water.
Read More Here This very strong climbing rope is designed to hold people up to 300 kg / 660 lbs and has a tensile strength of 15 KN which is equal to more than 3 million pounds.
The rope is thicker than the other two, and you will, therefore, have a better grip on your rope when pulling up heavy treasures.
Read More Here BEWARE some people on the subreddit, magnet fishing, says, that you should not use paracord at all.
To that, I disagree.
They say it doesn't hold because the knots make the rope weak.
I have used paracord for magnet fishing in more than three years now, and I have NEVER broken the paracord.
You can be unlucky with any rope you buy.
If you do not want to use paracord, I suggest you go with the climbing rope.
So the 110 kg strong magnet is fine.
But the setup/rig was just not strong enough to use for magnet fishing.
