P-Line Cxx

Recommended Posts

Just bought some cxx.10# for spinning and 12# for baitcasters. I've never used before, just hoping to get some opinions on this line and what's the best knot or knots to use.

Palomar knot, and its really good line especially if you have a stump pulling buisness. Not joking ;D ;D :D :D

x2.. i use P-line and use the palomar knot/imp clinch.

Unless you have a large spool on the spinning reel, you're going to probably end up hating that 10 lb. on the spinning reel.

In the future, CXX 4 or 6 lb. is plenty on spinning tackle.

Why ask after you bought the line?

CXX sucks on spinning tackle and works

okay on baitcasting gear in warm weather.

CXX is tough, strong and some of the toughest

line on the market. Manageability is the issue.

6 lb. CXX on spinning tackle is just fine.  I fish everything from 8-25 lb. on casting tackle and don't have ANY problems.  I highly recommend the line for anyone who values strength and abrasion resistance.

I fished CXX exclusively for several years. For those

interested in the 2nd best line you can buy, I highly recommend

CXX, too. My only issue with P-Line is manageability in cold

weather. I fish for smallmouth October through March and the

CXX simply has too much memory to fish. The higher pound

test lines exacerbate the problem.

No argument there, it is less manageable than other lines but it makes up for it in strength.  I recently thought I'd try braid for flipping, fished it for 4 hours or so and off it went and was replaced by 20lb CXX, never felt better about a decision in my life.  I tend to shy away from P-Line on spinning tackle, I use 10lb Yo-Zuri Hybrid for that but baitcasting gets CXX.  It may be less manageable but when 12lb line will straighten a hook and pull up a 30lb log, I'll take a little extra coil

I love P-Line and it WILL pull stumps, logs , trees and striaghten treble hooks.

However, Yo-Zuri is softer and less memory.

I use P-Line if I plan to change it often but Yo-Zuri if I want to leave it on for an extended period.

I bought some 20# cxx last month, spooled it on a shimano spheros 8000 reel and it never made it to the water, hated it.

Sent p line an email and they told me to return it, wasn't really worth the postage but I did it anyway.  At my request they replaced the line with floroclear, sent me 2 spools and a hat.

Have used the floroclear before and I liked it so I spooled up the 8000 and it was beautiful on this reel, I also have an Avet mxj conventional spooled with it as well.  This stuff is strong and is great for open water.

love cxx extra strong and very good a lot of memory but its ok.. yo-zuri is better for casting but after my one bad spool i never bought it again.. in my opinion cxx for heavy cover and yo-zuri for the lighter cover

I don't mind memory....I think memory mostly disappears after a few casts.  That said....I wouldn't put 10lb CXX on a spinning reel.  It is a .014" line, and the heaviest I go on a spinning reel is .010....maybe .011.  CXX is the toughest line of the market IMHO, and I've tried them all.

Just out of curiosity....did you like the 15lb CX Premium?  That is the line I recommend for anglers that enjoy the benefits of a soft line.

Yes, I am still fishing it on one reel. This you may find odd, but in

stained water the line does not "disappear" and I don't like the

florescent blue tint on the reel. A better review would need to

address clear water.

BTW, thanks to Burley, I picked up a spool of CXX for another try.

Crazy, huh?

I have it spooled on a spinning reel in 8lb test and it does have a bit too much memory when trying to cast lighter lures. I will probably go down to 6lb test or switch over to Yo Zuri in the 8lb test
