Co-poloymer fishing line

Recommended Posts

Could someone explain this line to me. Its advantages. I am thinking about trying some Yo-zuri hybrid this year on my spinning gear. I want to use it mostly for tubes, small jerk baits and senkos. Is this line a good fit. How is its sensativity.

Read Yo-Zuri's website.  It's pretty good at explaining Hybrid.

Yo-Zuri is only a little stiffer than mono.  It has much less stretch.  It has good abrasion resistance.  It is stronger than its rated test.   It's only a little more expensive than mono.  All in all, its an excellent line.

I have had really good luck with hybrid lines. The two I like are Triple Fish X Rated and Yozuri. After fishing with Yozuri for the past month in the trees and on the rocks, I am sold. It handles well and is very tough.

Bass Pro has some spools left for $5. I ordered 10lb Smoke and 20lb camo green. I have found 10lb to be plenty of line on my BC except for my flipping/pitching rod which I strung with 20lb.

The smoke is almost a purple color and does well in ALL water. I thought it would stand out more in clear but it doesn't. I prefer camo green but they didn't have it in the 10 or 12lb spools.

All these lines that the others have said are good lines but, give Gamma a good look. I have been useing this for the last two years and I love it!

Becareful when shopping for copolymer lines, especially if you want a hybrid floro-mono line.  I found out the hard way that most company's copolymer is a blend of different nylons and has no floro in it.  In fact when I questioned a couple of companies about a true copolymer (floro-mono blend) I was always directed to their "floro" lines, which in many cases was just mono with a coating of floro.  Due to the high regard that many here have of yo-zuri hybrid I have purchased three spools from BPS for 4.88 for the 1/8 lb spools and 5.88 for the 1/4 lb, which is a great deal.  So just make sure you do your homework before buying a copolymer as many companies sell a blend of pure nylons and call it copolymer. There are relatively few true hybrid lines.

I ordered 2 600 yard spools of 12# test and 1 spool of 15# Yo-Zuri ultra soft (clear) from Cabelas for $12 a spool.  I loaded up a few of my baitcasters with 12# and casted around the yard a bit and it casts really well.  It is stiffer than mono but seems to handle nicely.  I'm sure 12# would NOT handle well on most spinning gear though.  I'm sure I'll have another update when I get a chance to fish it.  I was thinking of using 15# for pitching jigs but I'm not sure I need that much strength - it seems pretty stiff...
