Has anyone used the seaguar tatsu flouro line?
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:50:53 PM »
Howdy.....just joined up and wondered if anyone else has tried the tatsu line. I fish in central Maine and got into bass fishing a couple years back, guess I'm pretty much a finesse spinning reel and soft plastics guy at this point. Was looking for a low viz low stretch line that casts well and is strong. Thanks...woods

@Woodseye Welcome to the forums!

I personally haven't tried it yet, but might do so this year, now that you've mentioned it  :D

Hopefully someone else here has and can give you some feedback on it.

Well I've used the tatsu for a season now (guess I should have explained that) sorry.....I was just wondering if anyone else had give it a try. I know its pricey and was hard to justify at first but its seems to fit my needs good and its what's between you and the fish, pretty much invisible too. I use an improved clinch knot and it has yet to break or knot slip even on strong fish.

What size are you using? I know fluorocarbon line can be kind of gnarly on some spinning gear, since it's usually fairly stiff and unruly.

Personally, I only use it on casting gear.

I'm using 10# but simply because it was the heaviest before the spools jumped in price. It casts a country mile and no I have hit no difficulties at all. Guess that's why its costly since its two different strands bonded together. You may have to push the line once or twice if you are using a bait that tends to twist your line during the day but using the stick baits and creature baits I do nothing at all. Very small diameter, so I plan on moving up to 12 or 15 next....when it starts to effect casting distance I'll be there. Always coat with KVD conditioner when I spool it new but spool it and forget it after that.

Red label and bass pro xps (made by seaguar) are great options. I like AbrazX on my flipping set ups.

Tatsu is great until it is not. It is so expensive that you will push that limit. Red Label for me also for baitcasters. Invisex as a leader for spinning

I was looking at Red Label the other day at Dick's Sporting Goods. Didn't grab any, but I might give it a try, even if it's only to write a review on it.

Personally, I like the Stren fluorocarbon line. Very reasonable cost, and it performs really well.

Nice thing about red label is you can get a 1000 yard spool for under 40 bucks if you catch the right sale  8)

Hmmm.. just noticed that Red Label isn't available in 17 lb, test. Huh. Might be a deal breaker for me, since I like to use 17. lb. line when spooling up my beaver rod.  :hmm:
