Which would you use: Tilene 100% or Seagar invizx??

Recommended Posts

I never felt like I needed to try anything else after using Trilene 100%

Has any one tried both.

I have. InvizX is softer with a little less memory but has more stretch. Trilene 100% has better abrasion resistance but is not as soft. I like the Trilene 100% slightly better, but you can't go wrong with either one.

I agree with this.  Inviz-X is soft and stretchy; Trilene is soft, but not quite as soft as Inviz-X, but has 10x the abrasion resistance.  I'm done trying fluoro's;  100% is the deal....

When it comes to flouro, you can't have your cake and eat it too.  If you desire a 'soft' line, then the abrasion resistance isn't going to be there.  The opposite is also true.

Trilene 100%, IMO, offers the best compromise of any flourocarbon line on the market.

I am really shocked by the results too. Maybe because you can get the Berkley in Walmart and more people have tried it? Maybe this line really is better than the stuff they have made in the past? One very important thing to look at is the diameters of each line. Berkley 100% fluro for some odd reason is way way thicker than other brands of fluro in the same pound test. So to really compare the two you have to look at diameters instead of the pound test listed on the label.

Have you tried the seaguar Abrazx?

Trilene 100% for me. I liked it so much I quit trying to find a "better" fluorocabon. Like mentioned before it offers the the right mix, IMHO, of abbrasion resistance and sensitivity. Like Randall mentioned it is thicker in diameter than other lines in the same lb test, but I have had no problems dropping down one line size, I used to use 8lb fluoro. for drop shoting, and now use 6lb Trilene.

You all got my curiosity going since Trilene was leading the poll. I went to Walmart to look at the Berkley line and get some to test but soon realized I would have to use 4lb test Berkley to replace the eight pound line I am using to have the same or smaller diameter. I knew it was thicker but didn't realize it was that much thicker. Then I realized  it only has 110 yards to a spool and quickly changed my mind on trying it at over $10 a spool. I am still curious but real happy with my Invisx.

Cheeper on eBay Randall.

I will just add to what has already been said. I've used both a lot, and have concluded that Trilene 100% has the best trade-off of properties. In fact, I came down to these two lines in my search for a fluoro. I've tried most of them (I haven't tried the newest Seagar offering), but I think my search is over. I really like Trilene 100%.

I totally agree with this. I've tried both and like each of them.
