I have only used xps and really like it, however I got some spiderwire 100% for a deal I couldnt pass up, it looks pretty similar and ive heard from a few freinds who fish it that they didnt see much of a difference between that and the bps!

XPS ( BPS ) fluorocarbon is actually Toray Super Hard Strong, with a different label and without the hefty price and limited availability of Toray, a very good and "inexpensive" fluorocarbon if you ask me.

Seaguar Carbon Pro is very good IMHO.

XPS for me as well. I would like to try Sufix though.

I fished Pline, Seaguar Pro, Invisix and then XPS. XPS is better than them all on my baitcaster in 14lb and 8lb on my spinning reel.

My partner bought Trilene 100% Fluoro and he hates it! I thought he was crazy and tried to tie a dropshot for him. He was right. That line stinks! You can't pinch 8lb to get it to go through a dropshot hook!

xps, at least on my reels, dug into itself like braid after i set a good hook.

it lasted one long day on my reels.

I'm lost...why do you need to "pinch" the line..?

Just tie a palomar and leave the tag end however long you want.. ;)  I haven't had any issues with trilene 100% yet.

Did everybody but me know vanish sucked? HAHA. Found that out last Thursday.

Spiderwire fluoro for me. Been holding up. Well. Longer than the vanish did.

I voted 'Other'.   Sunline Shooter is by far the best I have tried. But with that being said, I don't think it's performance offsets the price.

On the rigs that I still use FC on, XPS is working well.

The best I've ever used for leader material w/superlines is Orvis "Mirage" 1X tippet, made for fly fishermen. 14.5-pound test, about 8-pound test (mono) diameter. Not very likely to be manageable on the spool of a spinning or baitcasting reel, but still. Tough, thin, and strongest I've ever seen. Only for leaders, I suppose. ;D
