Sufix Advance 100% Fluorocarbon

Recommended Posts

“The line’s inherent qualities and exclusive G2 Precision Winding™ make this fluorocarbon virtually memory-free.”

 

Fluorocarbon and memory-free in the same sentence = Oxymoron

 

Could it be true ?!?

Key word: VIRTUALLY.... That opens that statement up to any definition of memory-free...

We've spent years listening to the pros tell us that fluoro has next to no stretch, and we know that's crap so I'm gonna chalk this up to marketing.

 

With that said, I really like Sufix mono so for that reason alone I may try their fluoro

I always wondered why Pro fishermen said flouro didn’t stretch, and still say it.

I do not have any Sufix fluorocarbon, but do know that they are still level winding their bulk spools.  I have been using Invizx 15lb and the last 1000yd spool is not level wound.  I mention it because it is important to some anglers that the spools be level wound and I really don't care whether it is or not.  I have not had a problem spooling my reels from a product spool which is not level wound.

Memory free on their spool will probably mean it won’t be memory free on yours... unless I suppose you wind it on your spool the same way, lol.  IMHO, excellent marketing strong enough to get anglers to bite (I like sufix line btw).

 😅

 

I’m with you - oxymoron

I have never used Fluoro.  I have seen the test results on stretch.  Yes it stretches just as much as mono.  I have read though that it takes more effort to stretch than mono.  I was going to grab a spool of Seaguar Tatsu to test that theory. (go big or go home!)

Because they’re just normal guys like the rest of us except with cool jobs. They’re under pressure to build and maintain an audience so they sometimes fall into the trap of rehashing debunked myths or just talking nonsense to have something to say.

Funny this got brought up. Had a friend ask me last night about this exact line and whether Wheeler was using it during the Championship that aired this weekend. So I texted Jacob, and this was his reply:

 

“Yep, that's exactly what I was using. It is no joke some of the best fluorocarbon on the market.”

 

Probably worth a try on that comment alone. I’m 90% fluoro on all my bait casters and don’t see the memory issue as being any worse than some monos though.

Ha, whose Jacob Wheeler anyway ;)

 

LOL, I had already ordered some up for August when it’s in stock, but Jacob’s comments certainly don’t hurt!

Bring the labels "waterproof" vs. "water-resistant" to mind. 

 

Pretty much all line manufacturers label lines as memory-resistant, but none are memory-proof.

 

I'll still likely get a spool to try. Sufix makes some excellent braid and mono, so I doubt this will be a total dud.

I don't subscribe to the idea that stating an untruth and repeating it when you know it is false makes one a "normal guy."

Me either. By “normal guy “ I meant they don’t possess mystical powers supernatural ability or all knowing insight. I listen to what they have to say and weigh it against my own experience. Don’t blindly follow anyone

Ah . . . . got it.  I should have known.  My apologies for casting aspersions on your post.

I agree, it’s not just with fluorocarbon line, it’s with all gear. Any time sponsors are in the mix real opinions go out the window.
