Used To Braid But Trying Flurocarbon

Fluro sinks so you get great sensitivity and you're invisible

It's stiffer, and the memory thing. Braid has little to no memory, while Fluorocarbon does, and quality Fluoro will have less, but bad fluoro can be like casting a slinky.

I have used braid for years and recently tried fluoro on my jig rod. I'm pretty sensitive to changes like that and I'll tell you, the stretch I felt in fluoro was horrible for me. I don't have a very hard hookset and with fluoro it was even worse. I stripped it all off and went back to braid/fluoro leader for all my t-rigged presentations and jigs.

That's just me though,,,try it for yourself.

Fluorocarbon is much more dense than braid, so a full spool weighs more. It's pretty wise to up the braking a bit, compared to your braid setting.

The biggest advantage of flouro is the density being higher sensitivity on slack line is greatly improved. For these techniques there is going to be slack line.

 

Stretch in flouro depends a lot on which kind you use even with the same manufacture. I personally use Seaquar, Invizx on spinning, and Abrazx on BC. The Invizx works well on spinning because its easily manageable but does stretch. The Abrazx has far less stretch and is more resistant to abrasion.
