Need New Line Mono Vs Fluoro

Recommended Posts

I'm out of town. I was on eBay and found I have eBay bucks expiring soon so I need new line anyway. I Trued searching the sticky on my iPhone could not find much. I have Tryed fluorocarbon berkley friend 100 %. I have been told that fluoro is literally a must have. Is there really much of a difference between fluoro and mono? Besides the stretch does one have a blogger advantage over ther other, and what brand and # test is the best too many too choose from and I hear there are a lot of bad brands out there. Thanks

I keep reading posts that say fluorocarbon has no, or very little, stretch compared to mono. However, that is not what I gathered from testing done by TT. So far I have only used one brand of fluoro...10# Spiderwire Ultracast 100% Fluorocarbon...and I can tell you for a fact it has stretch similar to what I am use to with mono.

Slap, I use both the green and the purple smoke. It depends on your water color and clarity

Yozuri is a great line in any color.

Florocarbon is more abrasion resistant and does have less stretch. It is a denser line than mono therefore it transfers vibrations better than mono. I was skeptical at first, but I now only have mono on my 3 cranking rods and floro on about 10 rods. Lower lb test floro has more stretch than higher lb test. I would also recommend looking at Sunline Sniper florocarbon. Its reasonably priced and performed better for me than Trilene 100% and Invizx.

x2 for seguar invisix. get the 12lb to start. you have to be more careful tying knots so practice. i like fluoro better b/c as stated its stronger, more abrasion resistant, and i love the immediate response for hook sets

LgMouthGambler, do you recommend clear or green in this line?

Either one is good. My 12# is clear, my 20# is green

I would recommend the Yo-Zuri Hybrid as well. Very manageable line and has to be one of the best values out there! I use 12lb on my MH crankbait rod and 8 lb on my M crankbait rod. You won't be disappointed. Flouro can be hard to manage but if you get some KVD line conditioner it can help.
