Yo-Zuri Hybrid On Sale At BPS

Recommended Posts

Now this isn't Ultra Soft, it's original formula and only limited

sizes. I generally prefer green for ultra clear water and smoke

for everything else. I ordered 2 X 1000 #6 Smoke which I will

treat with KVD Line & Lure Conditioner and spool up on spinning

tackle.

D@mn it!  I was at BPS today and bought two 250yd spools for 7.99 because they didn't have any of those.  Now I am mad.

It is a shame BPS does not carry the Ultra Soft.

Cabella's has it but not BPS.

Wonder why?????   ::)

Whoa..I wish I could find that deal ^^^. I was at Gander Mountain today in Huntsville and was specifically looking for the Ultra Soft and wasnt able to find any.

You can see if they are willing to ship it site to site. They dont charge for that. But they might not do it for clearance items. But I have had rifles and fly rods shipped to our store from other locations for no extra charge. The store here is Lake Mary Fl and there were dozens of boxes of each left on the clearance rack.

What is the difference between Ultra Soft and regular Hybrid? I LOVE Ultra Soft but I've never used the regular stuff. The Ultra Soft is more white than clear but I still love it.

RW, do you still have that table with the actual breaking strength of Ultra Soft? I was wondering about the actual breaking strength of the 10lb and 15lb

Does this stuff have more characterstics of Flouo, or of Mono (ie. does it sink or float, stretch, virtually invisible in water, stuff like that)?  It says a "Flouro Copolymer", but everyone compares it to Mono.  So do you guys use it when you would normally use Flouro or Mono.  Just starting to look at this stuff and for that price I better look really hard at switching to it.  And why is it so cheap? That price is crazy.

Thanks in advance, especially you RW, I know that this is all that you use, lol, and you are a huge proponent for this stuff.

Specifications:

http://www.yo-zuri.com/Products/Prodline/HybridLineChart.htm

Hybrid is a bonded, not coated, nylon/fluorocarbon copolymer.

In smaller diameters (#4 & #6) the line is virtually invisible

in water; larger diameters blend well. The line is impervious

to water and ultraviolet light so it lasts indefinitely. Abrasion

resistance is comparable to P-Line CXX, Trilene XT or Big Game

and it floats.

Clear is just okay. In small diameters it doesn't matter,

but in larger sizes the line stands out a little.

So its sensative like Flouro, Stretches and floats like Mono.  The sensativity sounds great but the stretch and floating worries me.  Ussually Flouro is used cause it is sensative (good for shakey heads, drop shot, etc.), doesn't stretch (good for ripping through weeds and quick hooksets), sinks (helps with tighter lines in jigs/suspended jerkbaits, etc.)  Plus it is abrasive resistant.  So as you can see, I am having trouble seeing where to use these type of lines.  They seem to act much more like mono, so I can use them in place of Mono but get a line that is more durable and abrasive resistant, but don't really see replacing this with other Flouro's because of stretch and floating characteristics.  As you can see I am set in my ways of when to use flouro or mono, so just need a little insight as when to use these new "hybrid" lines. Thanks again.  The price is what is very intriguing :)

This is how I break it down:

Spinning tackle: Hybrid or Hybrid Ultra Soft #6 (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb test)

Baitcasting gear: #12 (.013" diameter, 19.5 lb test)

Give it a try. If you don't like it, give it away or throw it away.

The downside is $4.88.

ultra soft has more nylon and less fluorocarbon than regular hybrid. theoretically, then, ultra soft behaves closer to mono (stretches more, floats more, and less refractive but softer and more body) than regular.

as for breaking strength, here's the yo-zuri page with the link: http://www.yo-zuri.com/Products/ProdLine/Hybrid.htm. keep in mind, however, that most lines have a breaking strength higher than what they are labeled.

beamer2, there is no magic bullet. i use hybrid and hybrid ultra soft and i like the line a lot but i have found that i still need fluoro too. the yo-zuri lines have replaced all my mono because it is tough and slightly less stretchy. when i need a line that sinks, i still turn to fluoro.

yo-zuri makes no claims about it being invisible underwater. despite having fluorocarbon content and a double-finish coating of fluorocarbon, yo-zuri only states:

Clear HYBRID's light refractivity and visibility is lower

than nylon, yet somewhat higher than 100% fluorocarbon.

(note: they only say this about the clear color)
