i hate cxx on spinning reels. havnt tried it on a BC yet but i had my abu cardinal 801 spooled with 6lb cxx and it was nothing but headaches. recently switched to sufix siege and the casting distance/manageability? outweigh the cxx's break strength.

havnt tried the CX or any other copoly.

I've never felt that the moss green has cost me bites, in green water it is great and hard to see.  Unless you are fishing crystal clear blue water, I wouldn't worry about it.  I have used both CXX and CX in moss green but recently purchased CXX in crystal clear because I found a good deal on 600yd spools but still have a great supply of the moss green.  What type of P-line CX, CXX?

I have never used CXX on spinning because of warnings here, I have opted for Flouro-Clear and Yo-Zuri Hybrid for spinning.

sqhertz,

The CXX is very heavy and stiff unless you drop to the lower # lines.  You should try the CX prem, I think you would like it.

x2, I use 6# CX on my Spinning rig. Very good line.

ill give it a shot. im not sure if it was the small spool size or what , but that cxx line sucks on spinning reels imo. is it a night and day difference between the two?

P-Line Fluorocarbon = 100% Fluorocarbon

P-Line CX Prem = Fluorocarbon Coated

P-Line CXX = Xtra Strong Fluorocarbon Coated

I also use the 6# CX prem on my light spinning gear and it rocks.

There is a BIG difference between CXX and CX prem.

I don't see this info listed anywhere.  As far as I knew, CXX is simply a copolymer, not a FC coated line.  Could be wrong, but it doesn't "act" like a FC coated line.

You are correct J Francho, CXX is a copolymer.

If you're having trouble managing 6 lb. CXX on a spinning reel, you must be using it on a 750-sized spool.

CXX is no more stiff than YoZuri Hybrid, Trilene XT or Trilene Big Game.

i think abus x01 size is similar to a 750. ive always used trilene xl before. its good line. recently picked up some sufix seige and i like it better.

i use big game in 10lb on my baitcaster. never any issues there besides visibility. havnt tried the others.

im thinking of making the switch to braid on my spinning reels.

i use 6 lb. CXX on my 2500 size reel and it is very good , as long as i respool after a couple of trips !!!!! ;)

btw , if you want a very good option , try IZORLINE XXX in smoke color , a very managable line that has very good strenth ....

P-Line CX Prem = Fluorocarbon Coated

P-Line CXX = Xtra Strong Fluorocarbon Coated

CXX=underrated line in it's LB test break strength.

When you are buying a box of 10lb you are getting a box of 12 or 14lb line. Diameter and all.

Compared to what? Trilene XT? That's what I'd use as a "benchmark." So buy by diameter. BTW, it isn't as overrated as many claim, you should check the data.

Stated Strength/XT dia. in mm/CXX dia. in mm

6/.25/.23 - whoops! Its actually smaller!

8/.31/.30 - whoops! Its actually smaller!

10/.33/.35 - larger, but not as large as XT 12

12/.36/.37 - larger, but not as large as XT 14

14/.38/NA, though 15# is .40

17/.43/.41 - whoops again!

and on down the line.....

So you can see that you made an exaggeration.

:;)

Interesting. While I would compare a co-poly to a co-poly I still find the sizes smaller than I believed them to be.

I would put cash down that the diameter, or line ratings have been changed over the last few years. I remember CXX being much larger than other lines.

FWIW when comparing a co-poly to a co-poly Y/Z still comes in smaller in nearly every lb test offered.

So I guess I stand mostly corrected. ;)

Compare CXX 4 lb. test to other lines.  I did last week.  CXX 4 lb. is actually smaller than Trilene XL 4 lb.

Just sharing data.  In reality, 10# CXX feels "bigger" than other 10# lines.  I don't know if its stiffness or what.  I've been using P-Line for several years, nothing's changed that I know of.
