Red label for leaders is what I use. I also bought some Kastking Fluoro off amazon and it's actually decent stuff. Prefer sniper, myself, however

I like Vicious for a cheap fluoro it has never let me down.

I would also say Red Label, when I first started fishing flouro I picked up some Red Label at Wally World to test it out, I mean it is no Tatsu or even Sniper but it does a really good job for its price.

Another vote for red label, however that is solely based on my experience as a leader. All of my setups have braid for the main line.

Sunline super flouro is decent also. I switched from sniper to super because its hard to find sniper here. I like it but havent used it a whole lot

Seaguar Red Label is the best value fluoro I've tried, and I've tried a lot of them.

I wouldn't skimp here.  Use a time tested copolymer or coated line like CXX or YZ Hybrid, if you don't want to spend a lot on line. These lines are less than $10 a filler spool.

Red Label for leader, InvizX for spinning tackle and AbrazX for baitcasters.

Fixed that!  Don't use reel fill for leader, unless you're in a pinch.  Real leader material is much stronger, more resistant to abrasion, and more forgiving with connection knots.

i wouldn't skimp either, it will leave a bad taste as far as fluoro goes.  Also, use some cheap mono backing and only use 60-75 yards of the fluoro and you'll be able to make it last much longer and even spool more than 1 reel with it...

I use a little more, like 100 yards (two reels per 200 yd filler spool) only because I cannot stand feeling the connection knot.

It gets no love here, but I've had a pretty good experience using Gander Mountain brand fluorocarbon.  It's thicker than Seaguar or Sunline but handles pretty well for me with KVD L&L, I'm using 10# on a baitcaster right now.  I can't compare to Red Label because I've never used that as a mainline, but it's about the same price.  $25/400 yard spool.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that it's the same as the BPS private label "XPS Fluoro" which was decent stuff before Invisx and Tatsu were widely available.

It's made by sunline and pretty sure it's sunline super fluoro.

Seaguar here I like the Abrazx, I use it for everything, I'm sure there is better, but I know there is worse, the Abrazx for me is a good all round Fluoro that holds knot good and does a good job on abrasion resistance.

Red Label for cheap, AbrazX for middle of the road.

Red label was fine as a leader for me. As a main line I didn't care for it much. Trilene 100% was good to me and isn't super expensive. The bps brand treated me good too. I have settled on sniper for my fc needs over the past few years.

I have been using the yo-Zuri soft for the past couple months and may forget about fluoro for awhile.  Stronger and handles much better.  The 10# feels as strong as any 15# fluoro imo.
