Pline fluorocarbon verses floroclear

Recommended Posts

Both have different applications so its kind of like comparing apples to oranges. P Line fluorocarbon is 100% fluoro whereas fluoroclear is only fluorocarbon coated. I have used both and I prefer the fluorocarbon for everything but flipping (braid) and topwater (mono or copolymer).

I have used plenty of different brands of Fluorocarbon including P-line. Started using Spiderwire Ultracast 100% fluorocarbon last year and it is the best of them all that I have used. Gamma Fluoro wasn't too bad. Spiderwire is smaller in diameter and less memory than any I have used.

I use a Palomar knot all the time and have no issues with line breakage or knot slippage.

The 100% fluoro seems to have less memory than the fluoroclear, but it's a bit less abrasion resistant. It's still darn good line though.

Vanish is good for nothing, it breaks with little pressure, tied with ANY knot.

I have had good results with Seaguar Carbon Pro. Its stretchy,  but that doesnt bother me at all, in fact I prefer some cushion vs. the directness of braid (Power Pro).

My experience between the two lines are like night and day.  100% P-Line FC was decent.  Fluoroclear was junk.

I use InvisX now and love it. Seaguar used to make the FC for P-Line so I was told. I used to use the P-Line until I used the Seaguar. I never looked back  :)

I do use Sunline for my light line applications though. I use the Seaguar for 10# and up.

Thanks, I do want to try it, or XPS. Any site you recommend ordering it from?

I think their are two kinds of fluorocarbon users:  Anglers that use Trilene Pro-Grade 100%, and anglers who haven't tried it yet.  Seriously...it's the sack.

I really like the fluoro - low memory and sen-si-tive. I lost two fish before going to the palomar knot and havent had a problem since.

X3 I thought maybe it was just me setting the hook to hard but I quess not.  P-Line is what I had been using.  I'm not sold on any brand yet.  I need to try some other brands to make an informed decision.
