New Fishing Line Review Posted

I published another review of a brand of fluorocarbon line that I recently tried.

If you fish with fluorocarbon line at all, you need to read this review!

My first experience with floro was Vicious, it was almost my last!  I was using it on spinning gear and hated the way it came off the spool :P

Had a much better experience with Berkley 100% but i'm still on the fence on floro ???

I used the Berkley 100% and really liked it. But I hated the price, so I switched to the Bass Pro Shops brand and have liked that way better. I've used it for several seasons now.

But it looks like they've changed it and now it has terrible reviews.

I've heard some really good stuff about P Line and Sunline, so I will be giving one or both of them a try in 2016.  :nod:

My recommendation when it comes to Fluoro is to use in on baitcasting outfits. I know they make it in smaller lb. test for spinning reels, but my own opinion is that it wouldn't behave very well on spinning gear because of the stiffness of it.

I also noticed today that Sunline (I think) has a special Fluoro line that might work better on spinning gear, since it has a coating on it to make it smoother and has less memory than other fluoro lines (according to their promotional text).

Seagar is on sale at TW for Christmas.  I stocked up. Use red label for baitcaster and invisex for spinning.  Braid with leader.

The 100% i used was on a baitcaster, had pretty good results with it. The KVD line conditioner really helps with Floro IMO!

I'll probably try some more this year, i've also heard good things about Seagar line, it's not cheap though.
