12 Or 15 LB P-Line CXX

Recommended Posts

Which of these 2 line weights would be a good all around line?  I want to use this for worms/jigs, topwater, shallow cranks & medium cranks.  Maybe also use either of these lines for frog fishing in less weedy areas.

I know there are other lines to consider like Yozuri, Sufix & braids.  P-Line to me seems to be a very good strong line w/ all the qualities I want in abrasion resistance & less visibitlity...& for sure strength.

Thanks

i use 10lb pline cxx in moss green for all my application except pitching / flipping ,carolina rigging , frogging i use 12lb pline cxx

on the 10lb i straightened a 2/0 gamakatsu worm hook ,,,,if you get it in heavier than 12lb it gets some memory and in all my experience the 10 and 12  are super strong

I use 10lb when I use CXX, but I do not have any on my baitcasters this year yet. Trying Yo-Zuri for the first season and love it. Had no problems with the CXX btw, just wanted to try something new. Will probably use the CXX on a frog rod soon though.

12lb cxx for pulling stumps up that are already uprooted.  15 when you have to uproot them up yourself.

You can uproot the stumps with 12 lbs CXX, no need to go for 15 lbs ..... unless you need to uproot a sumbmerged tree.  :)

I use 15# on my mh spinnerbait, heavy action jig & m action buzzbait rods.  Very strong line.  If you plan on using it for deeper cranks you may want to go to the 12#.  I have 12# fluoro on my deep cranking rod & 10# on my medium cranking rod.

10 lb. CXX breaks at 17 pounds.  I use 10 pound CXX for steelhead fishing, where the average fish is 12-18 pounds and fights twice as hard as any bass.

I have both 12 and 15# CXX for different applications. The 12# I use for spinnerbaits, topwater, swimbaits. 15# for t-rigged plastics, jigs, heavy,slow moving bottom baits. I also use 10# CXX for all crankbaits. Just remember the KVD line cond. Makes a HUGE difference.

Would anyone happen to have a link to a chart of average breaking strengths for the different lb tests? Like the one Yo-Zuri has? I've been googling and can only find it for 10 lb.

Go with the 12. Fifteen would be better if the cover is heavy though. Generally if I have to go higher in strength than 15 pound test, I reach for braid.

Try the CX premium as well. A little less memory and pretty much the same in strength and abrasion resistance.

Well I guess Im an aberration I use 15lb on most of my rods except my jig and worm rods where I use 17lb. On my flipping and swimbait rods I use 20lb. My friends joke at me cause if I could get away with it Id use chains. ;D
