Is Seaguar Red Label 20lb. Test Any Good?

Recommended Posts

There is a spool of 175yds. at my local Wal-Mart on clearance for $3, if it could be useful for a heavy fluorocarbon line for jigs, spinnerbaits, senkos etc. i will pick it up but if it's too unmanageable at that pound test I'll probably pass on it.

Buy it all.  Or hide it someplace and let me know where.  I have a meeting in Waterbury on the 14th and will go at lunch.

Jigs, Flip with it, Carolina Rigs (you live in VT, you WILL learn this technique).

It's a bit heavy (at 20lb test) for my liking, but at that price I'd say why not try it. H@ll, you'd probably resell it if you wanted to.

Yeah, it's good stuff. Just get some KVD line and lure conditioner and you'll be fine. Spray it on the spool the night before you fish, and when you're spooling it with line initially and it works great. Check out my haul from Walmart today...Got this all for under $35!

You'd be better off with #12-15, but $3 is a great deal. Try it. If it doesn't work, strip it off and go with something else, like Yo Zuri #12, which would be more appropriate for the techniques listed.

It's great for leader material when you're fishing around docks and stumps. I've learned the hard way that 15 pound fluro isn't enough around stumps. I lost my personal best largemouth at Lake Fork on a guided trip while using 15 lb, even though the guide told me to come down with 20. I use it mostly for leader material and use braid as my main line. Trust me, get it! It's a hell of a deal!

I did end up buying it. They only had 1 box. I'm not into leaders though so this would be used as a main line. I'll have to find a small bottle of that KVD Line and Lure Conditioner.

Works fine just apply the KVD l&l.  I've used it as mainline before, definitely I'd use that line for heavy cover, stumps docks...etc.

I bought the only 20 lb red label I found last week. I also lucked up on 5 rolls of yozuri hybrid, one 8 and the rest 15 for 2.50 a piece.

 

Now if only I could find some cheap braid......

It's probably just me but I like it more than the blue label seagurs

It only cost you a cup of coffee and a donut so no big deal, but I bet you keep in on 1 day as a main line.  Hell, I am not fond of shooter and sniper as 20 lb mainline.......that is Tatsu area.
