seaguar invizX

Recommended Posts

just wondering if anyone used the seaguar invizX with great sucess. basspro48 has switched over to it latley and it has become his favorite line, and i have been looking for another line to try lately and his success with it has made me want to switch to it. just lookin for you guys' feedback, how is it?

i use it almost exclusively for a leader. i think its pretty good. but since i only use it as a leader, I can only attest to the knot strength and abrasion resistance, which is pretty good. i don't know how it handles.

Best fluro I have used. When I was first trying it out last year around this time I landed a thirteen pound bass on six pound line in heavy grass. I was almost expecting the line to break but it never did. Its all I use now unless I am using braid. Handles well and unless someone has made something in the past few months better it has the strongest knot strength of any fluro on the market.

I've used the 12lb and liked it a LOT. It's expensive though, but very good. It's the only true fluoro I've used and it's great.

Give it a shot.

I don't know about other strengths, but I use 6# test for drop shot and finesse.  It is the best fc line I have ever tried.  This line is awesome and it is the best fc line I have ever used.

I have been using Seaguar invizX for the last several month.  I find it has Strong Tensile strength, very  manageable,  cast good,  Reasonable priced.  Also several Bait shops in the area carry it.

I tried it out this summer. For me, the jury is still out and I'll have to give it a try again next year. I thought it was great up until the end of the season, when I switched over to another spool of the stuff since my main spool was almost out. I just couldn't get the hook set with it. It may have been that I was not used to the rod I was using though, since it was only the second or third time I was using it. Overall, I was very happy with it until that last time out with it.

Biggest downside I see is how expensive it is. $16 or so for 200 yards. ;)

I have been using the 4lb for my trout/panfish setup.

It's okay but IMO it's not as great as everyone talks it up to be. Had some trouble with it on my spinning gear to tell you the truth. I thought that it would be so much better than vanish (which I didn't have a problem with at all).......but IMO I liked my 4lb Vanish better for my trout setup. But I'm going to spool it up again next spring and give it another fair shake.

I've tried it.  I didn't care for it.   I was used to mono and even though Invizx is the most supple fluoro out there, it's still stiff.   If I was dead set on using fluoro, I'd use Invizx.   I'm going to try Yo-Zuri Hybrid, which I hope will be a good compromise between mono and fluoro.

Its awesome. I wasted alot of money on other flouro's before trying Invizx.....its alot limper and the best ive found for spinning gear. I have 6 and 8 lb on 2 different setups and love it. Guessing most people who have tried flouro and hate it are the ones who dont know how to properly use a spinning rig. After "properly" spooling it on, do You hold your rod right? Dont laugh ALOT dont! Do u "feather" the spool during a cast? Do you use your off hand and tighten the line before starting to reel? If you do this properly then flouro and especially Invizx is easily manageable and far superior to mono and most other flouro's on the market.

i do everything in your post commish24 and always have, it greatly reduces problems with kinking and loops in your line and reel, especially with flouro

Guess I don't know how to fish a spinning rig than if I don't care for it.   :;)

There is an article or two in TackleTour.com about all popular fluorocarbon lines.  In thatose articles. the Seaguar lines are among the most stretchy of those tested.

When fishing spinning gear it's the only fluorocarbon line to use.  When you have a spinning rod in your hand as much as I due on the deep clear water lakes fluorocarbon is a must.  Seaguar Invizx handles aswell as most mono's on spinning gear.

The lakes I generally fish the most for smallmouth are deep, down to 360 feet in the main lake basin, and gin clear.  I have never found that fluorocarbon was really necessary.  In theory, it should work better due to less visibility.  It is somewhat more sensitive, due its denser material than mono.  In practice, I have not noticed much difference.  Should sesitivity be a big requirement, I have found a light braid, say 10-15 pounds with a mono or fluoro leader joined to the standing line via the Albright knot to be the very best.  This set-up is tailor made for use on spinning reels, and lends itself nicely for use with light to medium light spinning rods.

I tried some 20lb Invizx for soft plastics and used it 1 trip---was entirely too stiff.  Ended up using it for leaders and on a flipping rod.  I like Vicious and XPS Fluoro's much better plus they are cheaper.  Looking at *** prices, Invizx is more than double the price of Vicious and IMHO no any better line.

See thats my beef with it. I want as less stretch as possible with my plastics.

Going to try BPS XPs Flouro in 8lb next year.
