P-Line CXX mossy green?

Recommended Posts

What's up everyone? i was in at gander mountain today to get some new line for fishing my jigs in heavy cover and obviously in and around structure. I picked up P-Line CXX Mossy Green in 20 lb test. I was wondering what you all thought of this choice as I am still undecided after today when I fished off the bank (i can't stand fishing from shore) and not getting a bite so i could really test how it felt with a fish but casting feels kinda strange with 20lb line, kinda makes it feel like i'm casting with a guitar string lol.

20lb CXX is quite extreme; I regularly use 15lb on my heavier rods and have a very hard time breaking it.  I use the 15lb for large shallow crankbaits as well, and I always straighten out a barb on one of the trebles when I hang up versus losing my bait.  I'm not sure if there is a fish in the lake that would break that 20lb CXX; it breaks at over 30lbs.  And yes...anything over 15lb test in CXX is like guitar string  :(.  It's the nature of the beast.  Try the 15lb...much more manageable.

I used some 12lb for a while and it was STRONG. It would have benefitted with a little KVD line conditioner...

P-Line CXX is awesome stuff in my opinion.  The only downside is it does have a fair amount of memory, but this can be virtually eliminated with KVD line and lure conditioner.  Even before discovering KVD I only used P-Line b/c of its unmatched abrasion resistance.

I only use 15lb as well and have a tough time breaking off many of my hang ups.   I don't know that I would throw the 20lb out, but I would probably buy 15lbs next time if I was you.

I 've fished with PLine CXX, 15 pounds is more than I need for flipping into them mesquite trees, for regular fishing I think 15 lbs is waaaaayyyy too much line after me uprooting a stump with 12 lbs, the line ...... didn 't even blink when I pulled it.  :-?
