Flourocarbon Line Application

Recommended Posts

I've been using this stuff for a little while now, but really just want to know whats everyone's ratio of flouro to mono now, and how many times a year do you guys change the line

also if you had problems in cold water, as I have broke off fish/lures from abrasions, the stuff just didn't seem to hold up.....and if anyone has tried the new Trilene, as Ive used XPS and Berkley Vanish.....

Anything else on the stuff I'm interested

Thanks in Advance.....

I use fluoro for jigs and worms...basically all my Loomis BCR's.  I use the Trilene Pro-Grade.  Everything else gets copolymer...including my spinnerbait, crankbait, and other moving bait rigs.  Pline CXX to be exact.  So I'd say I'm running about a half and half mono to fluoro ratio.  I change my fluoro as often as my mono.  Fluoro is impervious to UV rays and heat, but not to abrasion.  In many instances it isn't as abrasion resistant as a good copolymer.  Therefore fluoro gets knicks and cuts that could lead to line failure.  I fish about twice a week and change my line once a month.  Twice a month if I'm fishing rough areas.

When you said your line breaks, make sure when your tying your knot that you wet the line. Also with fluro I was always having trouble with the fluro jumping off the spool when I opened the bail & getting a lot of loops and twists. I went back and read the pamphlet that came with my Stradic. They showed 3 different ways to put line on the spool. I needed to adjust my sools so they loaded up closer to the front. Since I made the change I don't have any problems with fluro on my spinning reels. Hope it helps.

I like the new Trilene Flourocarbon. I have tried 8lb, 12lb and 15lb all have worked great. All the things I have disliked about Flourocarbon in the past have so far been fixed with this line.

I have been using mostly for softplastic Texas rigs and jigs but I do use for crankbaits that I want to run deeper. I usually use Yo-Zuri or P-Line Floroclear for everything else.
