My report after a year of Seaguar on Spinning reels

Recommended Posts

Ok,

I'm a die hard Seaguar InvisX user.  I love the stuff.

Hands down I think it's the best line out there.  I'm not asking for opinions really, this is not the intent of the thread.

Based on RW's recommendation I had been using Yozuri Hybrid Ultra Soft on my spinning combos up until this season and for various lazy reasons I ran out of Yozuri early in the season and decided to just use Seaguar since I have alot of it in bulk.

After giving it nearly a full season of chances I have come to the conclusion that there is no comparison between the two for spinning reel applications.  Ultra Soft is the way to go.  Mind you I had no break offs or anything like that, no lost fish, no line shy fish problems.  What I did have was managability problems.

I will admit that I am terrible at line management with spinning rods and I really prefer not to use them.  You just can't justify not using them on the Great Lakes for drop shot and tubes (which is mutually exclusive almost on Clair and Erie).  The point is I had a lot of line twist and knotting and line just spooling off in big clumps all knotted up.

I dont have any of these problems with Ultra Soft, so for obvious reasons I'm switching back.

Ultimately the point to this thread is just a thumbs up for Ultra Soft on spinning gear and an apology to RW for questioning his sound mind and judgment and being too lazy to stick to it.

:D:P

You were not being lazy, I experiment with other lines all of

the time. I currently have two baitcasters spooled up with

PP 50/12 and two others with Seaguer InvisX 100% #12.

So far, I still hate braid but REALLY like the Seaguer on

the baitcasters. Yesterday I bought some #6 to try on a spinning

rig, but have not used it yet.

Over the past several years I have tried numerous lines on my

spinning tackle, but have yet to find anything I like better than

Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft. Note: I also use original Hybrid which

in the smaller diameters (#4 & #6) works fine on spinning tackle

when treated with KVD Line & Lure Conditioner.

It's refreshing to see a candid report on something that somebody has used for an extended period of time and gave an intelligant report about it.

Thanks Bass-Brat.

RW, I cannot see myself ever going to anything else for baitcasters.  Seaguar is just IT!

If Seaguar could come up with something that competed with Ultra Soft I'd buy it in a heart beat.  I have that much faith in them.

I posted a report on AbrazX in someone else's thread I think a couple months back.  If you ever flip heavy cover or rocks that stuff is just plain impressive.  I nearly wrote a letter to the company after a full day of flipping with it and forgetting to retie.  I landed 2 fish over 5 lbs and several over 4 that day flipping Kentucky Lake buck brush.

Just goes to the quality of Seaguar.  I've never had the "bad spool" experience you hear about in other posts about other brands.

As for the 6# I used that on my drop shot and never broke off.  This includes numerous smallies in the 3-5 lb range.  There was not as much management problems with the 6# but I still noticed line twist.  I absolutely do not want to go down to 6# for tubes out here on the Great Lakes in order to get the managability back.  Just too many zebra muscles and rocks you drag the tubes over.  For 8# and above I have to stick with the Ultra Soft.

With your skill and ability with spinning you can probably do the 6# Seaguar and be happy with it without any line twist.  If you can do that, it will rival the ultra soft for you personally.
