Best Line For Spinning Reels

22 posts in this topic

I have been searching for a line that is going to work well on my spinning combo. I have braid on all of my other reels and I was looking for something with abrasion resistance. I have tried multiple brands of mono including Stren, Suffix, Trilene and BPS. Any reccomendations on any other brands of lines or any other types of lines. Thank you for your help.

Tight lines

Spinning reels need a low memory mono like Trilene XL not FC line. If you want to a braid with a top shot of FC like a leader, that combination works well. Berkely's Nanofil low vis green is a good choice, casts well and is quite going through the guides. You use a filler of mono and about 75 yards to Braid like Nonofil, then a Uni knot to join a 6' FC leader. Line size depends on how and where you plan to fish; 12lb Nonofil works well with 6 to 8 lb FC.

I was losing decent size bass when I first started bass fishing using my cheap Garcia

River mist mono. When I lost my last 3lb bass I said that's it. I started looking for

a better quality line. There once was a line test done at

Lurenet.com were they did bending and abrasion tests. At that

time the Excalibur silver thread performed really well. It's

a copolymer line. It has no stretch like the rubber band mono

does. I been using it ever since with success and no lost fish do to the line

I'm using. It's performance over all has been out standing.

I can fish with any decent fishing rod, I can get by with any decent spinning reel, but

When it comes to fishing line I need a good quality copolymer

line. I have tried other brands of copolymer lines that we're affordable

but they seemed stiffer when I tied my knots. Cabelas or bass pro shops had a decent

copolymere line but they discontinued it. It felt like Excalibur

silver thread too. We may pay more for the Excalibur silver thread over mono but it's good quality line. Bigbill

P-line premium cx floro coat is pretty good but I like Daiwa Samurai with a floro leader

Like BigBill said use a copolymer like the silver thread or yozuri hybrid

I hooked a giant bass (for me :)) on a spinning rod with a white rooster tail and lost the fish.  So I switched to 20lb braid which is the size of 8 lb mono.

 

I like it a lot.

x2 for me. I use braid on all my spinning set ups. Less head aches with line, more fishing, more fun.  Plus the sensitivity is unmatched in my opinion.

Give Yo-Zuri Hybrid #6 a try. The breaking strength is 11.9 lbs.

Was using Yo-Zuri Ultra Soft in mist green, very good line

 

Recently I tried braid with a flouro leader and it has become by favorite setup, seems much more sensitive to me the way I fish. Currently I am finesse fishing

I tried fluorocarbon on my spinning reels but didn't like it. I've tried quite a few others but pretty much stick with Trilene XL. For the money it's a decent line.  I wouldn't mind trying Yo-Zuri Hybrid but I can never find it when I think of buying line.

I've used Yo Zuri Hybrid and Hybrid UltraSoft, mono, etc., on spinning reels, didn't like how they managed. Didn't like having to always condition line with KVD's special sauce.

 

10 lb braid mainline is what I use now, hi-viz yellow, and I always tie on a leader of various poundage.

 

Braid is just that much superior than any other line (IMO & experience, YMMV) as to management on spinning gear.

I have gone to Nanofil with a mono backer and fluorocarbon leader on all of my spinning rigs. That white line is unbeatable for visibility when you are line watching, it has zero memory, stays limp and is super strong with minimal diameter. Its also way slicker for better casting and no rubbing in the eyelets on the retrieve like other braids. The flouro leader sinks and is almost invisible while preserving near zero stretch and sensitivity. The backer keeps the price per spool down. It's an awesome rig.

I use Seaguar InvizX in 6, 8, & 10lb for most applications, but mono for topwater. KVD Line & Lure on everything. And I agree with Darren, I really didn't care for Yozuri. It is VERY strong though.

Learn how not to get wind knot and Braid is the way to go.  Braid cast farther and it's diameter is smaller per pound of strength.  If you feel that fish are seeing because your water is clearer, just learn to tie a FLC leader.

 

The only time I would use mono is for Cranking because treble hook just need that extra give or they fling out.

I started with 6-8lb pline flouroclear and loved it. That line is very manageable. Then i tried braid and was amazed with the sensitivity and strength. So now, i only use 10lb braid with flouroclear leaders when necessary.

I use 10lb trilene XL on my spinning set up. I'm not a huge fan of FC on my spinning setups because of all of the memory and I don't use braid because I like a line with alot of stretch when fishing a spinning setup.

I have a few spinning reels, here's what's spooled up:

 

2x Stradic CI4 2500 w/ Invisx 6#

1x Stradic CI4 3000 w/ Tatsu 6#

1x Stradic 1000 (old white, wood knob) w/ 20# Power Pro

1x Daiwa Capricorn 1500 w/ 15# Power Pro

1x Pinnacle Performa 20 w/ 20# Sufix 832

 

Fluoro is for deep, vertical, open water presentations.  Braid for weeds, shallow horizontal baits.  Add a leader of P-line CXX, from 6 to 12# size to braid for abrasion issues.
