What pound are you looking for? Most fluorocarbons are stiff once you go 10# and over. I would recommend trying some Sunline Super Sniper FC and always coat your line with KVD Line and Lure conditioner. It does make a difference.

Well somewhere in the 8 to 12 pound range.I tried 8 pound trilene 100% and it had to much memory for my spinning reel.

I am using FC for the first time this year.  I have let my line out a few times behind my boat while driving slowly around the lake.  Seems to help.  I haven't tried the KVD conditioner yet but have read many good things about it.  I have been using Reel Magic.

The Bass pro brand Fluorocarbon seems to be about the least stiff fluoro I have used.  That being said, it still is stiffer than mono.

It is going to be tough to beat sea guar invizx in the limpness department, at least for 6# test. As for memory, that comes with the territory with FC line, Trilene or other. Nature of the beast fo sho.  Fortunately, memory just looks ugly.

BPS XPS flouro. works well for me. As has already been said, KVD Line & Lure will really help. It was made specifically for flourocarbon and braid. Put it on the night before so it will dry before using it, and then during the day as needed. It is a water based polymer which will adhere to the line, unlike the oil based products which just coat the line.

I've used the hi seas fluoro I picked up bothin in 8lb and 12lb, and it was the limpest I've seen.  The next best has been the sunline, but its just way to expensive.  I don't use the kvd conditioner all the time, but I'll put it on every once in a while just out of habit.  With the hi seas, I have not had to use it much, and have had that 8lb on a spinning reel for about a month and still has almost no memory on it.

I have converted to Trilene 100% for my spinning reels and I still use Bass Pro on my baitcasters because of price. As the others have mentioned, drag the line behind the boat, spray on KVD line conditioner and use a reel with a 3000 or 4000 size spool. If using it as a dropshot try a tiny salmon swivel to minimize line twist, I usually have 3-4 petied leaders available to save time on  the water when I have a break off.

For the past 3 years I've been using Vanish Transition, which is a fluorocarbon/composite type line. I like it a lot! I fish two medium action spinning rigs with this line and have had no problems. Sinks fast too.
