I use P-Line.  I have used Evolution, CXX and Flouroclear. All good lines.  I used Flouroclear all of last season without any problems.  Trying out CXX and Evolution this year.  Been running alot of CXX lately.  Bought about 2000 yds of it, so I do like it so far.

Flouroclear is awesome line…. use it all the time.

That Momois line might be good for main line with a flouro leader…but I would use something a little less pricey if that is how my setups are.  Looks to be a fairly visible line, meant for saltwater…not saying it isnt good though.

I try to get the most for the money.  I have used other lines than Pline and Sufix…and there are better out there.  But I have yet to find a line that can touch them for the price.  And I can get both locally. 8 or 9$ for 300yds is pretty good.

Good post BBK.  I just recently had a bad experience with flouro. breaking on me.  I’d found that 15lb Maxima (green) is working for a lot of my fishing (spinnerbait, shallow crank, topwater).  My spinning reel has 8lb XT which is so reliable.  I had 6lb flouro. on when I lost a steelhead when the line broke.  I think 6lb XT would of held up better.  I haven’t had real clear water to warrant flouro carbon yet this summer.  I do have an extra spool of it just in case.

What’s your opinion on 10 Lb Trilene XL Smooth Casting on spinning reels ?  It’s available cheap at WalMart and I can’t find any reason why it is so cheap.

The formula, when creating it, is different.

i don’t think you can beat a copoly line, i’m running silver thread EX. i have almost as much confidence in it as i do braid.

I am also a big fan of Maxima ultra green. Used it in many types of fishing and has never let me down. I have also started using Fireline Crystal and have been very happy with its performance so far.  have not had too much sucess with the floro. though.

Trilene XL is cheap because it’s not selling and no telling how old it is, a better choice would be BPS EXCEL, it is made for BPS by Trilene and you get a ton of line for very little money and the line is strong and supple. you’ll love it. you get so much line, like 1500 yds, 10 lb, for like 9 bucks. you can change out your line more often and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to do it. But i really like Silver Thread Excalibur, i got a 3000 yds spool of 10 lb test that i am spooling up on my spinning gear and it is low stretch and strong and sensitive and has a little more stiffness than Trilene XL but not enough to cause problems. I have total faith in all my line and never am concerned about breaking off. ponds i fish get so weedy, i don’t need flouro but do use braid when i’m chunkin frogs.
