Best Flourocarbon For Baitcaster?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how everyone felt about fluorocarbon main line for baitcasters. I'm getting more into crankbait fishing this year trying to figure out which line to spool on my pro qualifier. Looking for something not too stiff that wont just birds nest on a long cast. I want to put it on my 4.7:1 reel for deep cranking.

I use Tatsu and Shooter without issue.

Looking for something a little more economical if possible. I don't really want to spend $35 spooling one reel. Thanks for the response.

I've had good success with the red seguar fluro. But i have only used it in saltwater.

I use backing and get 3 fills out of a Tatsu spool.

Hands down Tatsu is the best all around fluoro, and like stated above just back the spool with cheap mono and fill the last 50-60 yards of the good stuff (You wont need anymore). For cheaper fluoro carbon AbrasX is good for 95% of fishing techniques. As for crankbait fishing I'd recommend Invisx because of the stretch factor it has.

 

PS

Get yourself some KVD Line and Lure to treat your spools while you're putting the line on your reel. Then the night before also give your spool a good spray down.

I have been using Seagaur Inviz X for a few years.

I just recently spooled a crankin reel with Invizx and it feels, and casts really well. I went with it for its stretch factor and was pleasntly surprised how good it feels.

There is no best FC for a baitcaster, especially when you place a price limit on it. It all comes down to personal preference and the properties that you prefer in a good FC line.

List what properties are most important to you and how much you are willing to pay, then someone can start to help you.

So far I am using fluoro on only one reel.  I picked up a spool of 10# Spiderwire at DSG because of its price (low not high :teeth3:).  Couldn't even tell you which one without looking.  I was surprised after having read TTs review of fluorocarbon lines.  Had to break the line once so far.  Plenty of stretch.  Not a surprice.  What was a surprise was how much pressure it took to break the line.  It also displayed the fraying shown in the TT tests.  Had to cut a few more feet off before re-tying.

I like Seagar Red Label 10 or 12 lbs for crankbait fishing. It has a little bit of stretch to it and casts really well. Its cheap so I do not use a backer and I replace it often. Its not the best fluoro out there but I prefer it over anything I have tried for cranking and jerkbait fishing.

I use floro on almost all of my bottom contact set ups, I typically use invis-x or abras-x no issues with either of these, I also like the red label. I have switched this year on all of my horizontal presentations to a hybrid line like yo zuri.

I am a big fan of Tatsu, but for cranking I am using it as a leader on #30 Kanzen.

Other suggestions are AbrazX, Yo-Zuri Hybrid (copolymer) and Sunline Super

Natural (monofilament).

I really like Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon. It stays limp, casts well, and is very abrasion resistant.

Love flouro, but I only use it in topshots.  Back all my reels with braid (20-30lb) with around 100-150yds, then put whatever length topshot on.  Gives you the ability to fish deep to since the braid will let the crankbait dive deeper, just remember to back the drag off a bit so you don't pull hooks.  Then the expense of flouro isn't so bad when you can use 1 spool a whole season or more.  And agree with the KVD line conditioner, works wonders.

I've been using Berkley Trilene 100% fluorocarbon professional grade- I use half backer, half trilene  which is usually good for 2 or 3 reels.  I have 7 setups that use fluoro so it can get expensive quick.  I like the segaur abrazX for my skipping jig setup, and invizx for my worm setups, and trilene for the rest.  This fishing habit can put one in the poor house quick!

Tatsu is great stuff. As mentioned before, if you use backing, it really becomes more economical. It's also on sale at TW fairly often, so you can get it at a good price many times throughout the year.

Another vote for inviz-x. The guys here sold me on it and after using it last season I fell in love. Great stuff without breaking the bank. Use backer if you have a lot of reels to fill.

Also a big fan of KVD L&L, it just flat works.
