Zebco Omniflex Mono?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use this stuff? I was at Walmart today and they had some 700yd spools of 12# line. I picked up 2 spools for like 3 bucks. I figured I would use it as backing on my reels from now on, and that unless it literally disintegrated in my hands it would be a good buy for that purpose. Anyone actually use it as mainline though? Just curious.

I've used it on kids / loaner rigs where I expect to go thru lots of line from tangles, snags, twist etc. As far as inexpensive mono goes you could do worse I think.

i'd have no problems using it for backing, but i don't know on the mainline.  i'd rather spend a couple more bucks and pick up some big game.

yea, I took some off the spool to test it and it actually surprised me. Stronger than some other 12lb I have. I still don't trust it so it will stay as backing line for now.

I have the 4lb Omniflex on my ultralight that I use to catch bluegills. I accidentally caught a 10 lb catfish once and the line held up...it might had a lot to do with the loose drag, but the line did not break while I was fighting the catfish. The line is stronger than I expected.
