Tatsu.

 

Why do you feel you need fluoro with a spinnerbait? There are cheaper lines that will work just as well.

I can sum up what will be said. Don't go cheap with fluoro or you will regret it. A lot of guys love the seaguar tatsu. I've fever fished it as I use braid mostly. Seaguar invisix is probably one of best handling lines on the market. Sunline makes a good flouro. I was pleased with the trilene 100% and didn't seem to find any major flaws to it. Most spools by the bigger brands in the 20+ price range are pretty good lines. Others will chime in im sure.

Tight lines

Seaguar InvizX for spinnerbaits. Nice and soft, also has a little stretch so it's nice for reaction baits.

X2. My spinnerbait reel is loaded w/12# XL and it works fine.

I am a fan of any Seaguar line.  I went through trying all the cheap fluoro and it's all the same..cheap.  Red Label might be a good starting point into the world of fluoro.

I don't think it really has any benefits for spinnerbaits, since sensitivity isn't really paramount. That said, 12lb Invizx, Tatsu, or Sniper, would all perform well for throwing a spinnerbait. I've also grown pretty fond of 10lb and 12lb Trilene XL fluorocarbon on my baitcasters. I don't like the 100%, but the XL is pretty nice.

X3. You can use just about any line with spinnerbaits, it doesn't really matter. I use 10 lb big game, works fine, haven't had any problems. Can't beat it for 1500 yds of 10 lb for $9!

I like sunline ... But I only use Fluro for cold water fishing and a big rod with it and one with braid ... And that's only been since 2015 ... Mans I haven't caught a jig fish in the Fluro yet but I have caught plenty on it on spinning rods.. Id always use braid for spinner bait

I've fished Fluorocarbon exclusively since 2007, and I will second what was posted above, get the good stuff or lose fish.  Second and most importantly fluorocarbon knots only average about 80-85% of line strength. So when in doubt line up, and don't set hooks to hard...less stretch also means less shock absorption. And to make matters worse once stretched to a point fluoro doesn't bounce back like mono, it deforms and weakens the line.

 

Read up on the knots, as many fluorocarbon lines work well with different knots, I don't know the reason for this, but Tackle tour did a huge fluorocarbon 2 part showdown and you can find a lot of information there.

 

As far as fluorocarbon goes, I only fish Sunline FC Sniper and Shooter. As it's expensive I always use backing and then just top the last 60 yards or so with fluorocarbon. Good luck. And I hope that helps!

The correct answer to that answer is yes seaguar, sunline etc they all make a decent line

Best way to find out is to simply fish them all.

If cost is not a consideration Tatsu. Other highly recommended top tier fluorocarbons are Sniper, Toray and Shooter.

 

For great "affordable" lines, Seaguar InvizX for spinning tackle, AbrazX for baitcasters.

I like abrazX. I would stay away from vanish.  It was the first flouro I tried and it was horrific.

Grand Slam is very good. The fluo coated and the 100% fluo line. If it's good for bill dance, then it' s good for me.

Try 3 brands 3 price ranges and you'll find the sweet spot. Try my 3 tiers starting with Seaguar Red Label -$10, Seaguar InvisX - $18-$20, and my favorite Sunline FC Sniper - $20-25.

I've tried 90% of EM and that is what I feel comfortable and confident with. Pick up a $7 spool of Pline copolymer that might be what your comfortable with

The only reason is spend $25 on sniper is because it's a limper line Carrys very little memory and in turn last longer and I have confidence in it...that's the key

Looks like I am with the majority here. I use both Seaguar (red label & abrazx) and Sunline Sniper. The sunline is smoother and handles slightly better especially in the larger sizes, but for the price the Seaguar red label is hard to beat and is a great line. I used to use BPS XPS and I now feel that it is just mediocre in comparison to these.
