I absolutely do use Florocarbon for spinning reels, the best that I've used so far is Trilene 100%. A few things you'll want to do, first use a spinning reel with a 3000 or 4000 spool, the larger coils are less likely to birdnest and make sure to leave it at least an 1/8" from the spool lip. The second thing I do is troll it with no lures behind my boat to loosen it up spraying KVD line conditioner on as I'm reeling it in. Last but not least if using it for a dropshot put your leader on with a tiny salmon swivel to minimize line twist.. I can honestly say that Trilene floro if installed right is as manageable as most mono lines that I've tried.

I use 6# trilene 100% on one of my spinning reels.  It's the best flouro I've used.  I've never done any of the things Primus mentioned and I only use 2500 series reels, but I do use KVD and it eliminated all the line twists and memory.  I've used the 12# Trilene Flouro also on a casting reel but did not like it as much.  Even with the KVD it had some memory and was a little difficult to get used too.

Kevo I have not tried this line for baitcasters, I've used BPS floro 14#, 17# and sometimes 20# up to this point. When I'm pitching the line will bunch on occasion, to remedy this I make a long cast to straighten the line up.

I recently spooled up with 10lb Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon on my newly purchased spinning outfit.  I was very frustrated with it after several fishing trips.  Lots of loops and birdnests that had to be cut out.  I posted and got several of the tips noted here.  I can't tell you which one is the best but I can tell you one that I would avoid for spinning.
