Bass Pro Lines?

Recommended Posts

I think that this may have been posted,but if not here go's. Are The Bass Pro's Fluo.line any good? Because it is not a whole lot cheaper! Or should I stay with my Berkley 100 % Fluo.? :-/

i;ve used it before and have had no problems. seems the same, maybe a little bit more memory but no big deal. and if i'm not mistaken i believe it a tad smaller in diameter...

I have it rigged on every rod but my topwater rod and flippin' rod. I love the stuff. I spray KVD line conditioner on it the night before everyone outing and it's nice and smooth. As long as you tie a good knot it will be great!

I like the Berkley 100% best, but I've tried the BPS XPS and it was a good line. It is a little stiffer than the 100% but it does have good abrasion resistance.

it is a tad thinner than the trilene 100%.

all fluoros have a little dig on a heavy hookset...not that noticeable on dinks as on larger fish...or, in my case, stumps...generally, you can cast thru it on the next cast.

my problem with the bps xps was that i could not cast thru it on the next cast...on any hookset, the next cast would stop on the spool at however much line i had out when i had set the last hook.

for that reason, it lasted two fish before i pulled it off the spool.

I have used it for years and really like it.  I usually stock up in March when it goes on sale for 30% off.  Great buy at that price and a very good fluro line.

I've used the BPS flouro, its a decent line. My flouro of choice is definitely Seaguar Invisx, and i just spooled up a reel with the new Abraisx. I love Seaguar's flouros

Kevin VanDam was hawking it at the Richmond Fishing Expo this year so I would surmise it is acceptable.

Just be sure to use the KVD Line and Lure Condition on all lines, with the exception of braid.  :D

I think it's the best budget FC line out there.  I use it regularly.  I have grown to like the new Berkley 100% but still think that the Gamma Edge is the toughest FC I've ever used.

Why's that?  I've been using it on my braid.  Should I not be?

The gamma FC line was on sale at the Gander Stores for $15, it was selling for like $ 27 LAST SUMMER!

From the horse's mouth.... KVD Line & Lure is Great for braid.  Will help with wind Knots and keep the factory finish intact longer.  Basically it will last longer before fraying.

I used BPS XPS Fluoro on several reels all last year and really had good experience with it.  I found that it was easy to tie knots (I use the uni-knot almost exclusively) and I had no issues with break-offs.  I also used Seaguar Carbon Pro 15# on my main jig combo last year and it was a very good line.

I plan to buy more of the BPS XPS Fluoro during the upcoming Spring Fishing Classic, if they put it on sale again like they normally do.

Do you remember what it was on sale for last year?

You see about 85% of the pro's using either BPS or Trilene 100%.  I dont care if they do get a lot of it for free they aren't going to use a bad line when money is on the line.

I'm not sure what's spooled up on the pro's reels, but I do see quite a few Trilene and Basspro patches.  Bass Pro Shoppes XPS Fluorocarbon is better than average line.

If I remember correctly, it goes on sale for 30% off, and it was around $9 - $10 per spool.
