Does anyone have an opinion on the limpest monofilament?

Trilene XL, especially in the smaller diameters.

The limpest mono I 've fished with was Stren Magnathin ( don 't know if they even make it anymore ), sure it was limp but had absolutely no abrassion resistance.

Then comes the ever popular Trilene XL, very limp, very little abrassion resistance too, great for fishing places with little or no cover and non abrassive bottom composition.

Regular Stren is also very limp but as any limp line the abrassion resistance is low.

So you can have very limp but poor resistance to abrassion or resistant to abrassion but poorly limp.

You want both ? well, try copolymer but don 't over do it, above 10 lbs copolymer is as limp as a slinky.

Berkley XL or Sensation.
If I was able to spend as much time fishing as I do daydreaming and strategizing about fishing, I would be a wealthy professional bass fisherman.

McCoy mean green and most of the co-poylmers.

Raul, Magnathin is still made, that is my choice for lipped crankbaits.

Trilene XL is an eXtreme Limp mono and generally a real fine line.  Not as tough as some but is very easy casting on spinning gear...
Tight lines...

It's very easy to cast on baitcast as well. As others have mentioned, the trade-off is it is not abrasion resistant.

Trilene XL. I use it on all my rigs, baitcast and spinning ( 4, 8, 10, 12# test) except my heavy catfish rig. That gets Trilene XT (50# test).

Cortland Plion. Don't even know if they make it anymore, but it was almost the consistency of jelly LOL.

Like all others have said Trilene XL is great but I also have found that Ande Back Country in 8lb and 10lb is really limp and has descent abrasion resistance.
