Fluoro starting to break more often, breaking under rating?

That's been my experience with Sunline as well. I always buy lines based on diameter, not rated strength. These ratings seem to be all over the board and rarely are accurate.

 

On the flip side, take Yo-Zuri Hybrid for example. It breaks at way over the rated strength. It's also much thicker than you'd expect for that strength rating.

 

I'd be willing to bet that if we took a series of different lines from all over the globe that measured 0.10mm, they'd all break at about the same time under the same load.

I actually just got some 10lb Yo-Zuri Hybrid (wow that stuff is cheap) and tested it the same way I've tested the other lines. It successfully hoisted up the 10lb weight and withstood some light "tugs" to get it to break. Not quite as strong as the 14lb Sniper, but certainly much stronger than the 10lb Sniper. I'll definitely put this stuff to use, maybe as a leader material, maybe on a cheaper spinning reel to let family/friends use. I've read good things and so far at least I know it breaks above its strength rating!

You just described exactly what i experienced last month.

Bought sunline, realized it was all too low pound test#, had to send it back.

Bought yo-zuri thinking ahah, I need 8lbs diameter so I'll order 8lbs..wrong!  It was like original stren..hugely inflated.  Had to send that one back too.

And immediately after, I pondered break strength vs line diameter as well :)

 

Sunline says 100% nylon.  Sure how they cool/extruded matters..but if they are all production fishing lines, can't be that dramatic of a difference, as you say.
