Gotta say, I've tried several flurocarbon lines, and Tatsu is top shelf!  And now you can get a deal on it so you can try it yourself!

Thanks, Glenn! Now there's no excuse for me not to give Tatsu a shot.

I have been fishing Tatsu for a few years now and it still amazes me!

I really do need somebody to define "Best" for me? I've used several brands of fluorocarbon line, as well as fluorocarbon leader material. Sorry, but I'm not seeing or noticing any significant differences in performance. Costs, yes. But negligible, as far as where the water meets the line. And no, I have not tried Tatsu. I'm afraid that that is way out of my league, or rather pocket book.

Also, no one has convinced me that a quality braid with a fluorocarbon leader, is not just as effective as using straight fluorocarbon.  I think I put a lot of time on the water. I'm not a professional angler however. I suppose if I was, I would try harder at a scientific selection approach. To me, fishing is just not that serious. Rather it's fun - or is suppose to be anyway. :)

I respect where you're coming from but I sort of think the opposite in that if I were a pro angler (i.e. with sponsors), I would simply use the lines of my sponsor - easy, peazy. To me, and I'm guessing to a lot of us, a lot of the fun is on trying out all the various lines, reels, rods, lures, etc. until we find the one that best suits our needs as bass fishermen. 

There is absolutely a very significant difference in fishing line (be it mono, fluoro, braid) characteristics! I fish for fun as well. I haven't yet tried Tatsu but the way I see it, for all the coin I've dropped on various fishing lines (and rods, reels, boat, lures, etc), I owe it to myself to try it out given the positive reviews by some very well-respected anglers. Other than the cost, you never read or hear anything negative about Tatsu. Line and hooks are the two most critical things that determine whether one hooks and lands a big fish. And since I am not a professional angler, I want to give myself every possible advantage in case when those 5 and 6lb smallie decide to bite.

I have used Tatsu down to Stren Fluorocast and if you are matching line diameter with a compatible weight it's very hard to tell the difference. Like if you're throwing 1/8oz on 6lb brand isn't going to matter. It's when you throw 1/8oz on 15lb that the high dollar stuff stands above. 

Tatsu can be worth the price of admission or a waste of money. It depends on what you are asking of it.
