I wanted to get an idea what color Braided line everyone use, and if you are using high-vis line please tell us if you feel any difference from using the low-vis lines. thanks for your input guys.

I use high-viz yellow PowerPro Super 8 Slick. Didn't see it as a choice.

 

It has really helped me with catching light-hitting fish that just pick up the lure and swim away, which seems to be about a third of the time given the light/finesse stuff I throw.

 

Edit: I do use a fluorocarbon leader.

I believe I have all of those on one reel or another.  I don't think it makes a monumental differance, if any, to my catch rate.  Clear water folks may have different results, but I use what I find on sale, or, what is easy to see if its for a technique that requires a more closely watched line.

Hi-vis yellow + leader. Want to see my line as I'm primarily a soft-plastics fisherman.

which brand hi-vis yellow do you use? I am looking at the sx1 high-vis yellow, any experience with it?

Hi Vis yellow or white Power pro.  If I think I need it I'll use a marker on the first 3' but only in super clear water.  I hate to fish with guys who use the green or smoke and get hung up and expect me to see their line and get the boat so that they can get unsnagged.

PowerPro in 10lb for spinning, 20lb for baitcasting.

 

Haven't used sx1, but have used other brands including Berkley, Sufix, Spiderline, among others.

 

Just happen to prefer regular PP over the others. Likely will try more stuff as time goes by...

Chartreuse & Black

Berkley Fireline Tracer Braid (no leader)

 

The colors are alternated in 30-inch bands to help the angler see the ultra-fine braid (fish love this color-combination)

(Line color is on my top priority list, just beneath my doomsday prepper list  :-)

I got a spool from ***.com, Sufix call it Ghost color but it is actually white. You can easily see it above the water, and I have 10lb on a spinning reel.

Hi-vis yellow for me too. Too many subtle takes. Got to be able to see my line.
