yo-zuri hybrid

Recommended Posts

Im going to give yo-zuri hybrid line a try on a couple of my rigs this year. Im going put some 8lb test on a spinning rig and 12lb on a baitcasting rig. My question is should i go with the ultra soft on the spinning reel? Also for those that use this line which knot works the best for tying to hooks and lures?  Thanks

Sounds like a good set to me.  If you can wait till spring and BPS should have 1/4lb spools of regular Hybrid on sale for about $6.  That's 1000yards of 6lb for $6.

I use ultra soft on both spinning (#6) and baitcasting (#12) and am very pleased. I use green. I use the palomar knot and have never had a problem.

When using any fluoro, while tying your knot always wet it. :D

Both original formula Hybrid and Ultra Soft are a bonded (not coated) fluorocarbon/ nylon copolymer. You can tie whatever knot your like, a special knot is not rquired. I generally tie a Palomar Knot, but an improved Clinch, San Diego Jam, Uni or Trilene Knot will work just fine.

Tin and I were out a few times this year and he kept asking how I liked the Yo Zuri ultra soft. I said that it was pretty good, but even when I wet the knot real well, it will still break once in a while when you cinch it down. I think I showed him 4 knots in a row that would break when cinched down slowly. Then, at other times, it will be fine.... just me....

I don't have a clue. It never has happened to me.

Line strength and knot strength are simply not an issue.

YZ US isn't flouro. :-X

Forgot about that, thanks for the correction Burley.

But ya, I did witness the strange knot tying issues with it. Very strange, and I have heard other reviews and other people saying the same thing. Overall it isn't a terrible line. Just check your knots I guess :D
