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.
