Cajun Red Line Opinion

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I was wondering what your opinion on the red line is. Ive been using the 14 lb red line since thanksgiving and had nothing but success. I caught my PB and then topped that a week later! Have you guys had success with this line too?

I've never had any real issues with it. It had too much memory for my liking. I don't know if the red helped or hurt me any, but I've since moved on to mostly clear lines.

I use 12# Cajun Line.  I haven't noticed a problem with memory.  Probably have it on 3 different reels, and mine don't get used every week either.  I have more problems with memory on the first few casts with Big Game.

Have it on 90 percent of my bait casters and spinning. Been using it for years. Great abrasion, knot strength and memory and casting distance. Make sure it's the Cajun Red Casting for super distance and little memory. Soft & supple and I could not care less what the naysayers say of it.

 

Happy New Year

The Cajun Red Advantage and Red Cast have very little memory, it is on par with my favorite Silver Thread AN40, now the red lightning, that has a lot of memory to it. The thing that gives Red Lightning a bad rap is people putting it on spinning reels, it says on the box for round and low profile casting reels and I liked the line. There is another one for casting reels, it is Cajun Clear Lightning, you have to order it direct as it isn't in stores very much but it is pretty good. What I liked about it is the limited stretch and how clear it was, but the clarity, low stretch, and the basic feel of it reminded me too much of fluorocarbon, it handles almost the same as is close in clarity, the only difference is it floats but it is very strong with great knot strength. Overall the Cajun lines are pretty good and a good value but I'm not sure if the red color helps or not  but it surely doesn't hurt.

I love the 4# braid on my spin reels & light weight floaters.

When I used mono- it was my go to line. Loved it.

But I left mono behind long, long ago.

I don't use it anymore but I used to use it a lot for catfish and wipers and occasionally for bass. Very strong line with great knot strength and abrasion resistance. It does have pretty bad memory though.

x2 on the memory issue.  Red in bass fishing always confused me.

 

One side of the camp says it disappears under the water ... thus the red line.

 

Other side of the camp says red indicates "bleeding" on lures and hooks.  Thus very visible.

When I first started fishing sort of serious I replaced all the cheap prespooled line on my reels with the Cajun. Then as I got more and more serious about the sport I started trying new lines I realized that there were other lines that fit my needs more so than the Cajun. The memory wasn't the biggest issue with me. I mean beck I use untreated P-Line CXX on most of my casting reels and it coils up like a wire. Their just wasn't enough redeeming factors for me to over look the memory IMO. Cajun is fairly stretchy and only has decent abrasion resistance. I've settled on CXX because it's a strong as an ox and it takes 400 grit sandpaper before it even starts to fray.

I've used the red cast, which is the "castable" cajin line instead of the marine grade trolling line stuff and it's still an uncastable, high memory nightmare.

 

I use #50 vermilion red Power Pro on my jig stick and love the stuff for line watching.  I wish could get Super 8 slick or 832 in that color.
