I use green only because the color of the water and vegetation i flip is, yup, you guessed it, green! For clear water i would get the clear!

Just a question here; aren't you using a flurocarbon because it's light refractive index is close to that of the water itself? Which in turn, gives you less line visibility? (Let's not muddy the water with stretch characteristics.) If you add color - any color - doesn't that defeat the purpose?  ;) I'm just aking!

It's my under standing that the light refraction has nothing to do with line color. It's weather the line reflects light rays or not. If the line is fluoro, it has the same refraction as water. Both the clear and the green has the same benefit of not reflecting light rays differently in the water. This doesn't make them invisible, it just helps them blend in. It still makes sense to use clear in clear water and green in stained or around grass. I use the green in most situations because I can see it above water better than I can see the clear line.

i always use green , it seems alot of ''clear'' flourocarbon lines lose their ''clearness'' after a full day fishing ,kinda gets a little cloudy and a touch whiteish . i wish they made BPS flouro in green !! i got a brand new spool of 12# i'm probably gonna return and get a ''green'' flouro instead or get my money back and put it towards some SUNLINE SHOOTER GREEN ...

Any fluorocarbon clear white, black, or green has a better chance of getting the big bass bite. Green mono will work in most lakes, just like the clear mono. Green line blends in, red line sucks, and fluorocarbon works the best. I would go with the clear, just not the berkley brand.
