Seaguar AbrazX

Recommended Posts

Just did a search, only found one little thing. Just wanted to get a review from anyone that's used it.

My big complaint with Invisx was the amount of stretch it had. From someone who has used both, can you tell a difference?

Curious to hear any reviews, but very interested in 20lb and 25lb test users.

Thanks.

I have used both lines but not in the 20 to 25lb line wt.I like you did not like the InvisX because of the line stretch. I have not had this problem with the AbrazX, this line is a little stiffer. I use it on all my worm rod set-ups. I am using 12 lb test. I hope this was of some help. :D

Used it in both sizes for flipping before switching to braid. Not as abrasion resistant as you would think! Broke off a bunch of fish so i took it off. BPS XPS is BY FAR the best, strongest fluoro out now IMO!

Just buy some Red Label bro.

Personally not a big fan of Red Label. I treated it with KVD and still didn't care for it. InvisX is my favroit but defiantly has more stretch. I plan on in the future trying carbon pro, the one listed here, and Cablea's no vis that is made by seagar. I have Cablea's no vis on my spining reel in the 6lb size and it works great! I'm hoping the 15-20 is as nice.

Red Label doesn't have 25lb. I may just stick with 100% for the 25lb need.

Couple things...

Stretch compared to what? Braid, yes. It stretches alot compared to braid. Been using Invisx for 3 years and really havent noticed THAT much stretch to be a deal breaker.

Breaking off... again 3 years of use and can count on one hand how many fish I've broken off. None of those break offs were line failure. I meticulously set my drag correctly to ensure no break offs.

Not abrasion resistant? :-/ Just dont know what to say to that. Beating a dead horse in the last 3 threads I've posted on but an entire day of flipping buck brush with 20 lb test and landing several fish in the 4-5 lb class without retying... well I guess I'm lucky and got the correct spool in the batch.

I mean no offense to anyone, maybe I'm just the lucky one - but I wonder what other variables might be causing people to have problems when I dont. I'm particularly hard on equipment and tackle.

EDIT:  FYI braid is less abrasion resistant than most fluoro lines, it's just stronger and, well, by definition - braided.  So if a few braids are nicked it still retains a majority of it's strength.  Don't justify braid over another line (regardless of brand) because of abrasion resistance.  Now if you are speaking of stretch, then yes braid owns all other lines.

Around rocks yes, it is less abrasion resistant, around wood, braid will slice through the wood instead of getting frayed.

I have braid on 14 of my 16 setups. BUT, I tie a leader on most because of rocks.

Invisx is like a rubber band compared to other fluoros that I have used, that is why I hated it so much.

I also thought the BPS brand was made by Toray & the Cabela's brand was made by Seaguar
