100 % Fluorocarbon Poll, Whats on Your reel?

Recommended Posts

I am going to buy a bunch of Fluorocarbon line this year! I guide at night and Tournament fish. I have been fishing the Trilene 100 % and it was pretty good.Just would like to see your votes and input. Maybe I should change or fish more than one? :-?

from 2nd person reports, and from BPS and Cabales reviews P-Line consistently gets better reviews.

For my drop shotting, I want an FC line that is limp and manageable. This is why I use Invizx in 6# test.. It's reminiscent of mono and that is what I want in my FC line. If you prefer a stiffer fc line, don't choose invizx in lighter tests.

if you fish at night why use flouro?

To answer your question,Fluorocarbon has less stretch than mono or copolymer lines and is more sensitive and has better strength! And in my post I also said that I fish tournaments , so it is just not night fishing. I fish alot of clear waters and I do think Fluo. lines still make a differance at night!

Unforutnately that is not necessarily true about FC stretching less than mono. Some FC lines can have more stretch than a comparable mono! Yikes! I don't think that this stretch affects too greatly FC's ability to transmit feedback to the angler.

Now you went and opened up a can of worms! :-/

I hope not. :( I was just shocked to find out when I did. I too had the perception that it had less stretch than mono but in some cases, it didn't and that threw me for a loop.

This stretch is not necessarily a bad thing IMHO. 8-)

Give the Yo-Zuri Hybird a try along with your 100% fluorocarbon lines.

Give the Yo-Zuri Ultra Soft a try, too.

Although the Yo-Zuri line is a fluorocarbon polymer allow line, I think you will like it.

In any case, be sure to run the line through a wet spot on a washcloth soaked with KVD's Lure and Line Conditioner.

Let us know which ones you like and don't like.

Trilene. It is perfect if you add some KVD line and lure to it.  Invizx is nice and limp but to me it feels like it stretches closer to what a mono does. JMHO

No need to speculate on which ones are stronger or more abrasion resistant; Tackle Tour put all the fluorocarbons through the ringer.  There are some very clear winners.

I use Trilene 100%, but the BPS is excellent as well; I just like the clarity and slickness of the Trilene.

Zero (0) on the chart represents the abrasion resistance of trilene XL; i.e. Pline fluorocarbon is 30% less abrasion resistant than Trilene XL.

Trilene 100% wasn't out when the tests were done, but Tackle Tour reviewed it less than a month later, and abrasion was 34% higher than Trilene XL....which puts it at the top of the heap.
