Suffix Seige & Elite

Recommended Posts

I haven't tried either, looking for feedback and when you would use one over the other. Thanks

both sufix seige and elite is a good line to choose from, I personally like the seige better, its more abraision resistance without the extra memory. both casts great!

I've been using both Elite and Siege. I'm actually switching over to Siege completely. Fishing year round here in MD, I've found the Elite gets a good bit of memory under 45-50 degrees (air temps). Treating it with KVD L&L helped. I've had no issues with casting and I also find both abrasion resistant.

I've used both, Siege at 10, 12, and 20# and Elite in 8#.

I have never ever seen a mono line resist memory as well as either.

IMHO, Siege seems to be more abrasion resistant and Elite seems to be Sufix's answer to Trilene XL. If I am not mistaken, I think both Elite and Siege share the same diameter at the same strength so I am not certain why Siege seems "tougher" or durable (not tough or wirey like CXX - CXX is ornery tough and springy).

Both are excellent in terms of value and performance. I spooled 10#  Siege  onto my curado 101D late last summer and there it stayed until about 3 weeks ago or so.  After the first cast in the Cul de Sac, I was shocked to see that there was no memory in the line. NONE! I am certainly leaning toward making this my goto mono.

If you're going to face heavier cover, I'd recommend Siege, and for open water, Siege or Elite.

Great info guys, next time I need to pick up some mono I'm going to try some.

I also use both... the Elite on my spinning tackle and siege on a couple of BC rods.  Nothing but good things to say about both.

I use both of these lines all of the time. I really like to use the camo color in weedy areas. I feel the colorbreaks in the line make it very hard for the fish to see. Which I guess is the point.

both sufix seige and elite is a good braid to choose from, I personally like the seige better, its more abraision resistance without the extra memory. both casts great!

Neither of these are braid. Both mono.

I use Siege on my spinning reels. I like it a lot better then Elite. There's barely any memory and it casts like a dream! The Elite seemed to have a lot more memory on spinning gear. It could've been a bad spool though, who knows. I use Siege 6, 8, and 10 pound and I couldn't think of switching to anything else! B)

Their green color is good as well as the camo.

I prefer the Seige over the Elite, but then again I only use it on casting gear for shallow cranks and spinnerbaits.
