Recommended Posts

What is the best mono you can buy for the price?

Big Game?

Trilene XL/XT?

Stren Original?

Stren Super Knot?

Or whatever else you recommend?

Thanks!

For more than 2 decades I 've fish with this trio:

Berkley Trilene XT

Berkley Big Game

Have tried lotz and lotz of lines and always return to those three.

For a lot for a good price=Berkley big game                                       Good mono around 300 yds=Sufix Seige                                           I always use Blakemores reel magic when spooling line to reduce line memory.

Suffix Siege has served me well steelhead fishing streams in winter.  Many 10 lb.+ fish brought in on 8#.  For bassing, I use copoly, braid, or fluoro.

I'm currently a braid addict, but most of my fishing years (fresh & salt) were spent fishing with nylon monofilament.

1) Berkley Trilene XL

2) Berkley Trilene Big Game

If I were ever to return to monofilament line, I'd want some of the attributes of "fluorocarbon", but not too much.

That is to say, I'd move from Nylon Mono up to Copolymer Mono...namely:

1) Sufix Siege

2) Berkley Trilene Sensation (formerly 'sensithin')

Orginal Stren and P - Line CX Premium. Both have good all around casting and handling along with enough abrasion resistance and strength.

I was a long-time user of Trilene XL, but recently I did some strength tests and found Stren Original to hold up very well. Specifically, the clear version. Ive used braidw/flourocarbon leader and had good luck with it, but felt it was time to simplify things a bit and just use some mono instead. My gear was starting to get too complicated.

Oh, I know I'm gonna get nuts over this, but I think big game is cheap crap. I am not all that impressed with seige either. Stren Original is the ONLY mono woth it's weight. I have reeled in fish out of rock beds with line so frayed it looked like old rope. Stren is strong!
