P Line Fluorocarbon Or Cxx

Recommended Posts

I've been using P Lines 100% Fluorocarbon and love it. But I've been on the edge about trying some CXX. Any opinions on CXX? What fishing applications do you mostly use CXX for and rather not Fluorocarbon?

I have a spool of 20 lb cxx. I like to use it over fluoro in places where I might need some serious knot strength. Spinnerbaits and square bills in lily pads. Mostly so I can get them free from snags without breaking off. Also, the high lb test keeps the spinnerbait high in the water column which i like. I also like it as a leader for hudd 68's.

Not to hijack the thread but what is your main line for the hudds. Just asking because 20lb CXX is usually everyones mainline for them.

CXX is pretty good stuff and has incredible strength. 10lb CXX has a breaking strength of around 22lbs

I've switch all my outfits over to CXX, except my heavy frog rod, and a spinning outfit.

CXX is a good, tough line.  Pay attention to the line diameter though, you might want to drop down a size from what you're used to fishing.

On all my spinning and casting rods that don't have braid, I use CXX in 8-20lb depending on the setup. You need to use line and lure, but it's worth it imo.

I'm another huge P-Line fan, have been for years. There was a time I used CXX for everything except frogs, today I'm only using it on my cranking rod. I've pretty much moved to all braid. It's a great multipurpose line, you can fish it for just about any and every technique.

I'm also a big fan of their 100% Fluorocarbon and I mainly use it for leaders. I would choose the fluorocarbon for jigs and worms regardless of how or where I'm fishing because of its superior sensitivity. A-Rigs, big swimbaits, or large hard body topwater lures I'd definitely go with CXX. I think the handling characteristics of these two lines are fairly close with the slight edge going to the CXX IMHO.

Braid. Usually 50 or 65 #

I love there fluoro but I may go back to cxx because the sensitivity on the cxx is amazing

Spinnerbaits, general plastics, jigs and swimbaits are CXX territory for me. Drop shot, deep cranking, finesse, clear water are fluoro territory.

You can also count me in for CXX. I use it anywhere from 10-20# and it works for everything. Very minimal stretch and very good sensitivity.

I use 12 pound for everything from jigs to trigs to yum singers. My favorite line by far

Great line. I like fluorocarbon, but if I had to use only one line, it would be CXX. FWIW braid would be a distant third on that list, with or without a leader.

Keep in mind that copoly lines like CXX tend to be thicker in diameter.

 

12 lb CXX 0.37 mm diameter = 20 lb Sunline Sniper FC Fluorocarbon 0.37 mm diameter

 

Between the two, Sunline Sniper FC is more manageable and supple. Of course, CXX costs significantly less.

I will add also that I think P Lines Fluorocarbon is great too. It is actually my second favorite Fluorocarbon after FC Sniper.
