Question for Triline 100% Floro Users

Recommended Posts

So i been reading and have noticed a lot of people really like this line. I was thinking about trying it this spring for Football Heads and Cranking. I been using triline big game but was thinking i could get a little more sinsitivity out of the floro. Is there any downfall to using this line. How is the abrasion. Since i would be cranking around rocks and throwing the football head around rocks? Just curious to how you like it?

Great line you shouldn't have any issues. Treat it with some KVD while putting it on the reel.

What Tim said, X2.

Condition the line and enjoy the results.

ALWAYS check ALL LINES for nicks, cuts and abrasions, no matter the manufacturer, type or line test.

ALWAYS retie your bait after you have caught two or three fish or if you missed a bunch.

And give the Yo-Zuri lines a test, too. Especially the Ultra Soft.

Happy New Year.  ;)

good all-around line that is readily available here...it is loaded on all my tip-up rods.

i like the yozuri hybrid for tip-down but, if it were not also as readily available here, i would not hesitate to use the trilene for both.

Tried the Berkley 100% Fluoro for the first time last year.  Used it in Florida and back in NY.  While it does stretch as much if not more then mono it is so dense it does give more sensitivity and is much more abrasion resistant especially around rocks and zebra mussels.

The down side for me is it seems to break down due to UV after being on the deck for a few days.  I found the line to get brittle when tying knots and would have to cut off several yards before being able to finally get a knot to hold.

This year I am going back to Power Pro braid and if I need fluoro I will tie it on as a leader instead of wasting a lot of money on spooling up a reel with it only to strip off yards of it after the UV makes it brittle.

I use it, and love it. I had ZERO issues with knot strentgh, I use the Trilene knot for every thing and lube it up good. I only use the palomar on my drop shot rig, and had no issues with that either.

I use 6lb on my drop shot rod, and put it in Zebra mussle infested water in Lake Erie, and the Western Finger Lakes, many 4lb +, quite a few 5's, and 6lb Smallies on this line, and not 1 break off.

I use 8lb on my other spinning rods, and have no trouble with it either, I like it for skipping docks in clear water, it is extreamly abbrasion resistant, and nothing tests that more than a 5lb bass sawing it back and forth on a dock post.

It is as strong, if not more than it's rated, in a few applications I am dropping down 1 size. Last year I used 12lb on my jerkbait rod, I will use 10 this year, and 17lb on my  jig rod, but will go to 15.
