Yo-Zuri UltraSoft #10 on Spinning Reel??

Recommended Posts

How would Yo-Zurin UltraSoft #10 (or alternatives) work with a Tierra 2500 spinning reel?

I'm looking for something stronger the YZ-US #6, but still reasonably manageable. The #6 YZ-US was stronger that other #6, but not strong enough to reduce the number of lost baits (Reeds, Rocks, Timber...) Since I'm using this setup for fishing the shallow area of a quarry, I suspect #30 braid will not be best around the rocks.

I plan to continue using #12 (and above) with my baitcasters and #6 with my finesse spinning outfit.

Thanks for your suggestions.

I was gonna suggest #8 until I read your entire post, but personally I would go with the #10 lb with KVD line conditioner applied a few times thru the year.  On a spinning rig I would stay with a #8 Yo Zuri US though.  for the other #10 lines, Gamma copoly, Trilene XL.  I use the KVD conditioner on all of them.  JMO

10 lb Youzuri is a great all around line

I tie it all around

trash newpapers

old suit case to keep it closed

my pool cue case, broken lock

I wouln'dt fish it though , too much money and I didnt like the stuff a bit ::(

No, especially not a 2500. If you do though, please take a video for our viewing pleasure  ;D

Braid (20/6 or 30/8) is the answer. Just check it periodically for cuts and fray.

For some presentations a direct tie is fine, but I think you will have better

luck with finesse if you use a fluorocarbon leader.

I don't like braid, otherwise that is what I would do.

Horrible

To clarify a little... I tried #8 and #10 ultra soft on a spinning reel (2500 and 3000 sizes) and it would literally jump off the spool. It was bad. I can say that I ended up using #10 sufix elite (in the red box) with great results. It was more manageable than the ultra soft #8. The straight line break strength is probably less but still under rated and the abrasion resistance was very good. I have been using this line on my spinning reels for 3 years now with no complaints at all. It's the toughest line I've used that is nice and manageable on a spinning reel.

Funny you mention it cause I use the 8# ultrasoft leftover spool for anything else to tie with and don't allow it go near my spinning reel, ever again.

I have to disagree with most on this. I use Yo-Zuri 10lb ULTRASOFT on my light worming outfit which is a Shimano Spirex 4000 spinning set-up. Line does not jump off spool. Works quite nice. Regular Yo-Zuri Hybrid is pretty stiff and will spring off a spinning reel though.

Both are extremely strong lines IMO. I have yanked a 4 lb'er in that had me wrapped twice around a metal pier post. I was pretty amazed.

Thanks for the ideas, I might keep at least one spool with 20 or 30 lb braid (introduces new topics for me to research :() and experiment with copoly's or mono on the other.  I think Suffix Elite is available locally, along with some other favorites.  Anyone use 10lb Big Game?

Thanks!!!

No one said anything about a 4000 sized reel...  we all said 2500 (or 3000.)
