Substitute for YoZuri UltraSoft 12#

Recommended Posts

Since I have to drive quite a ways or order on-line, is there a decent substitute for UltraSoft 12# that can be found at the big box stores when I  don't have time to get the real thing?  I'm thinking maybe P-Line CX Premium in a higher test?

Thanks

If you find some Gamma copolymer give that a try.  It is one of my favorite lines but it is a little on the expensive side.

Thanks Aaron.  I've read a lot of great things about Gamma and although I haven't found it locally, it is available at most of the places where I shop on-line.

Before getting YZUS I tried the P-Line CX and really liked the strength and it cast well too. IMHO it has issues with memory. This was before trying KVD Line Conditioner. I think it would really help the CX. If for any reason I couldn't get YZUS, that's what I'm gonna do...

What do you think about Floroclear, last night I saw that the P-Line website says that relative to CX Premium, Floroclear has 30% more Florocarbon, 10% more stretch and a slightly higher breaking strength?

flouroclear is an excellent line. good stretch, not a lot of memory, and casts like a dream. only thing ive come to find out wrong with it is its abrasion resistance isnt the greatest.

Bass Pro has original Hybrid on sale for $4.88. I would suggest

buying a spool or two of the #12 and treating it with KVD Line &

Lure Conditioner:

I haven't fished P-Line CX Premium yet, but The_Natural is familiar

with both lines so his advice is based on an experienced comparison.

I think Gamma Copolymer is another viable alternative.

Pencil Pusher's suggestion probably won't work out too well for you. :)

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions.  I can find the regular Hybrid at Walmart. I'll look at it again.

I had to ask about substitutes because I was trying out the 12# US Saturday morning.  After a couple hours, on the last cast of the morning, I wanted to launch the bait towards some distant cover that I had been missing.  I ended up casting as hard as I could and just caught the branch that was about 10 feet in front of me  :-X  The result was not pretty  :'( :'(
