Suffix Siege 20lb is what I use to fish my swimbaits, up to 4.5oz, never had any issues with it at all. I have used 17lb for my jig rod too, no issues. Not sure about the 12 though, I tried some suffix elite 12lb on a rod I use for t-rigs, spinnerbaits, etc and I thought it was a little springy and large in diameter. But it never dug in, you probably don't have it spooled on tight enough.

What is your cast to hookset ratio? What I'm suggesting is if you are tossing a wacky or a trig plastic worm, it could just be that after multiple reel- ins your line has softly been respooled, then bam! You jerk and get line dig in... It happens. It's just a guess though.

Yea possible your drag may be set too tight. Never used less than 17lb tho I like siege line

You need Suffix 832 advanced, best braid out there[/quote

This is mono not braid

light braid will dig in. Go to much thicker braid. I use 65 pound on flippen, pitchen, and frog rod. No problem digging in.

I use 8# Siege on Medium rods and 12# Siege on MH rods.  Never had a digging in problem....but my hookset ain't much to brag about and fishing here sucks so it isn't like I make a lot of hooksets.  I do make a lot of casts, tho.  At least one of my reels making the trip with me next year to Florida will have 12# Siege on it.  I do get to make more hooksets then.  :teeth:

I used 10, 12, and 14 Siege all year with no problems, it's great line I switched from yo zuri hybrid because it's more manageable and just as strong, though I want to try Gamma copolymer to see if it's better still.

Why would I use braid for texas rigs instead fluro and mono. I use braid for flipping and pitching and topwater.

I have been using some 12# Siege lately and not having any problems at all.

braid for everything, use a leader if you feel necessary or if you have toothy critters, but in florida I always use straight up 20 lb braid

Not everyone likes braid for everything.  I fall in that camp.  in fact, if can AVOID braid, I will do it.  It has no slack line sensitivity, tangles easily, can be problematic with dig ins on baitcaster, and wind knots on spinning gear are infuriating.  That said, around half my rigs have it.

 

As far as the original question, dollars to donuts the line wasn't spooled up with enough tension.  I used Suffix in 12, 14, and 17 lb. sizes for years (after switching from Trilene) without issue.

 

These days, I use 12 or 15 lb. CXX for Texas rigs, though if you're having management issues with the Sufix, that line might not be for you.  It can be a handful.

why do you think it sucks? It is one of my go to lines and I love the stuff. I mostly use elite and started using siege only this summer and I have nothing bad to say about it. 

 

have not used the 12lb though. mostly 6,8,10

Siege is a good mono and its cheap at that. I can't comment about the smaller tests but I have liked 17 and 20#. I also like elite but only ever used it on spinning but have no complaints. For me though its CXX for everything if possible now a days.

Like J said though if your having trouble with siege I would stay away from CXX. That's not one you want to play with if your already having issues with just mono.
