Title: Braid or Fluorocarbon?
Post by: Skifisher on Apr 21, 2020, 06:02 PM
Advantage/disadvantage of spooling with braid or flouro on a Pflueger President reel? Primarily fishing trout, walleye and bass. Suggestions? Thanks!

Depends. I happen to love braid. Many hate it.  I use Nanofil 6lb with a 10 lb floro leader.  For eyes, trout, bass, perch, whatever.  Straight floro on a spinning reel tends to birds-nest.  Your results may vary.

X2 for the braid to a fluoro leader.  My ultralight spinning setup I run 6lb PLine but if the line starts to get twisted I'll change it out since the spool doesn't hold too much.

 I like braid , for ice fishing , shore casting and soft water jigging  ,
 Eyes , lake trout. , and perch , with either a  trans optic or carbotex leader

Braid with a floro leader. Braid last longer, but trout may be line shy. Floro has its place, but since it doesnít recover from being stretched, I donít like using it as the bulk of my spool.

The past 10 years or so, I have used nothing but 4 or 6 pound Fireline for jigging walleyes....h2l
