I've tried a bunch of different mono's... I always end up back at the Stren original though, best all around line for me.

yeah i like the toughness of it... and im a huge fan of theyre low vis green also incredible knot strength.... i think this is the downfall for me tho because my line NEVER breaks at the knot when i snag bottom... i end up losing 100 ft of line at a time because of it breaking at/near the pole...

after testing the Spider-wire ultracast for a good while, sure its strong enough for the fish, almost no memory, casts like a dream, but it's noticeably weaker for getting knicked and snagged and breaks faster than stren.

choice in fishing line is clearly subjective.    ;D  as far as I am concerned, stren is junk.  that spiderwire mono is even worse.  softest line ever.

yeah ive found there is no 'best' brand, just have to shop around and find one you like i suppose

so far Stren & SPiderwire ultimate lead for me

gonna try some Sufix Elite soon and see how i like that

im gonna pick up some Sufix Elite 6 lb and see if i like it or not, it's a thicker sized line for its class so it should be very sturdy

hows the Knot stength on sufix Elite?  only reason im slightly skeptical is i read bad reviews on it for know strength

You liked vanish? I thought it was way to stiff. If I'm going flurocarbon it's gotta be seagar

You betcha it is. I had it on my spin set up and I had line twist after line twist. Only "flurocarbon" that may work is p line fluroclear but that is a copolymer coated with flurocarbon

P Line Florocarbon !!! That's what I use as a liter when ice fishing. Works awesome !!! I also use it as a liter when rod and reel fishing in a clear lake. I never use steel...Hate the stuff.
