Copoly Line for Jig & Texas Rig

Recommended Posts

Really depends on what fishing conditions you are faced with....and Copolymers are not all created equal...but most of them will improve casting distance over standard monofilament, but only some will offer good abrasion resistance. Personally I like PLine Cxx for better abrasion resistance and Yozuri hybrid is good also, but not as abrasion resistant. But personally if I'm Texas rigging and I'm not fishing fluorocarbon, I usually use Cajun Line Red Lightning in 14lb test or 17lb for heavy cover. I know the reviews have always been mixed on this line, but I've not found a better monofilament line which performs close to a copolymer anywhere on the market. I fished this line almost exclusively last season, and I never once had a fish break off and never once had casting issues or line problems . The knots it ties are on par with copolymer knots and I can line watch better with the red line. Now I know I'm going to get ribbed for bringing up a budget line, but it just works for me with jigs and Texas rigs, when water clarity isn't an issue. Anyway just my 2cents, but anyone of those three lines would be a great alternative for this type of fishing.

Another vote for Hi Seas Grand Slam Select. 15# is my go to. Plus it is very budget friendly.

Lot of people like Yo-Zuri. Comparing it to other copoly lines it seems to run thicker tho. But I guess it isn't an issue?

 

I guess I just want something that has decent-good manageability, abrasion-resistant, and lower stretch than mono (that's not braid). Does copoly have noticeably less stretch than mono?

I have been playing with HI-seas grand slam  flouro coated copoly. so far I am impressed.

seems pretty good on abrasion resistance. you don't have the flouro knot issues, and it is very cheap.

a 300 yard spool costs $7.98, at walmart.

it stretches more than braid, but does not stretch near as much as lines like trilene xl.

Nice. Is it safe to say that all copoly lines have less stretch than monos?

You guys seem to really like the Yo-Zuri. I tried it when it first came out and I remember it had a TON of memory. Was it once like that or did I get a bad spool away back when? I picked up a couple spools of 12 lb CXX last week. I haven't spooled it up yet. How does it compare to Yo-Zuri?

On the rods I don't have Flouro on I use McCoy mean green. I think it handles better than Yozuri or CXX .

I don't know of any mono or copoly that handles better than McCoy. Especially on spinning gear.

as a general rule, I would say yes. but it depends on the line. 

trilene xt or big game are both mono, but they don't stretch as much as trilene xl.

Yo-Zuri’s Hybrid Line is a 50/50 Co-polymer consisting of flourocarbon and nylon. Hybird’s extrusion process creates a true molecular blend of the two materials that is 100% waterproof with the abrasion resistance and sensitivity of flourocarbon but incorpoarting the flexability and stretch of nylon.

Point

  • Co-polymer consisting of fluorocarbon and nylon
  • Molecularly bonded during an exclusive extrusion process
  • Abrasion resistance, UV resistance
  • 100% waterproof
  • Available in 600 and 275 yd. spools
  • Low memory

Bonded, not coated.

I use Yo- Zuri Hybrid #12 lb. as an all - around mid depth to bottom depth line .

Can't go wrong with Yo-Zuri Hybrid, still one of my favorite go to lines...

I agree. Yo-Zuri is one of the strongest lines out there.
