I don't agree with the crankbait line as far as fluoro goes. Some of those test pounds are a bit overkill.

I like the idea of fishing with the right line for the current condition and chosen lure.  However I tend to not have enough time/money/reels to do this optimization.  Oh well  ::)

I'm selling on all the Fluorocarbon applications here.  Sounds to me, these guys are FC lovers, as they have pretty much said FC for where ever they don't need floating lines.  The line diameters are overkill too.  I can't think of too many situations you'd need more than 17# mono or 65# braid.  Also, there was ZERO discussion of utilizing line as a part of the "system."  As in rod, reel, line, terminal components, and bait.  You can't just say, "You must use 8# mono for hard jerkbaits."  Spinning/casting, rod power and action, cover, water clarity, other species present, etc.  all come into play.

and from what I've read and heard from professional tournament anglers
That may be true, but I wonder if some of that chatter isn't just marketing hype channeled through the manufacturer's pro staff.

I agree with the article for the most part. I think mono line is only good for topwater applications since the huge advances in fishing line in the last 10 years. Fluro is the better line for anything requiring any type of feel or sensitivity (excluding braid of course). Even with cranking more pro's are using fluro and getting away from mono.

The author is out of touch with the real world of fluorocarbon line with the "low stretch" comment in the crankbaits section. After I read that part, I disregarded the rest.
