Best Fluorocarbon for spin casting?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm about 20 minutes away from leaving for BPS. I'm going to fish my soft plastics on Fluorocarbon from now on. Whats the best line for SPINCASTING? I've tried Mono and nothing over 10# test will cast far, so that should give some indication as to what Fluorocarbon might work with my gear.

I need very tough line that will cast really far. Please help?

Thanks!

I have p-line on 2 spinning rigs and like it a lot. I prefer 8lb test.

He did say SPINCASTING, not spinning.

Just to clarify, I have spincasting reels.  Looking for the best flurocarbon for far smooth casts and toughness.  I think I remember LBH or RW telling me a few great lines in a previous post I made, but now I can't find it.  I DO remember the P-line was in there and I was told the 8# P-line is stronger than the 10# Triline?  Since I couldnt remember, I just re posted.  Sorry.  In any case, any other recomendations?

Original formula Yo-Zuri Hybrid #4 (.009" diameter, 8.5 lb test) is my suggestion.

If you are not satisfied with 10# mono with spincasting, then about the only fluorocarbon line that MIGHT cast better is 6# or smaller, but I doubt it. Fluorocarbon lines are stiffer than most nylon monos. The route that the line has to take from springing off the spool and being forced through the reel nose hole that is so close to the spool, may just kill any distance you may be hoping for.

RW's suggestion may be your best option.

4-6 lb Trilene XT, in that test is doesn 't have the memory it has in higher tests and it 's still tough as nails.

I went to BPS and as far as YO ZURI the only thing I found was the Hybrid 8#/clear .011 diameter.  I bought some.  Is this still going to be okay?  

I am still blown away that I can get 850 yards for $5.50.  How is that possible?  Did I buy the "cheap version" of what you told me to get?  Or is this just the best darn line for the money on the market?  With that price, for that much line, it beat everything by far at BPS.

I hope this isn't one of those times where the ole "You get what you pay for" goes into effect.  

I'm gunna re-line my reels now, and look forward to trying it.  I really hope I love it, and it casts smooth and far, along with being tough as nails.  If so, it's the best deal in fishing.

I hope it works out for you. I know a little KVD Line & Lure Conditioner will improve the performance.
