Which type of line?

Recommended Posts

I usually use my spinning reel and have been using fluorocarbon.I know mono is o.k. and it stretches a little in the water. I was just wondering what you guys use and its advantages/disadvantages

    Monofilament is strecthy and a little visible.  Flourocarbon on the other hand isn't visible at all and also doesn't stretch.

    What techniques are you going to be using with your spinning rod?

I use braid with a fluoro leader. Very sensitive ;)

If you want to fish a pure fluorocarbon line, this is great advice.

Otherwise, you might give Yo-Zuri Hybrid #6 a try.

i also use spinning gear and have been using Trilene XL 10lb. exclusivley.  seems like a good all around line.  and i always use an improved clinch knot... i know i should learn more knots...but i havent.  

i'm always wondering if i should try a different line though.   :-/

i fish a lot, 95% of time from the bank.  in some cover but not too heavy.  mainly wacky rig, use some cranks, not a very good jig guy (always worried about getting hung up), and top water whenever i can.

i always see that RW recommends  Yo-Zuri Hybrid

should i switch from mono??  if i do.... can i use my improved clinch knot??

i'm just really torn on what line to use.   ;)

i don't have problems with the XL, just wonderin' if i should try the Yo-Zuri.  or do i need to?  kinda like the bait monkey has me on the line.

workin' on a tight budget.... i know it's under $10, but if the XL is ok..do i want to switch??

It hardly costs a thing to test Yo-Zuri Hybrid. If you don't like it,

throw it away and respool. If you do decide to give the Hybrid a

try, buy #6 (.010" diameter, 11.9 lb test). DO NOT put #10 on

spinning tackle.

I also recommend KVD Line & Lure Conditioner for all lines.

I have run the whole gamut of lines, Floro, braid, copoly and have ended up with braid and floro leader for 90% of my rigs from 10lb to 40 lb the others I haven't had time to switch. ;D
