P-line CXX for jerkbaits/spinnerbaits

Recommended Posts

"Looking for high abrasion resistance, but still high strength"

That's exactly what you will get with CXX. It's somewhat of a trade off though as it can retain memory, worse in larger sizes, but you should be ok as long as you are using casting gear. I use 8lb CXX for 1/4 - 1/2 oz spinnerbaits and treble hook lures. I'm thinking about upgrading to 10lb, but 8lb feels much less stiff and more managable. I'm planning on trying 6lb on my spinning outfit this year but can't comment on that yet.

Jerkbaits : just don 't play macho with it, 10 lbs is the most you 'll need, 12 + pounds ..... you really need to fish with a coiled wire ?

Spinnerbaits: you gotta do what you have to do.

P-Line certainly meet this criteria. As Raul

said, 10 or 12 is probably all you need. This

line is approximately 40% stronger than the

stated pound rating.

I've ran tests myself in the past ... 6# breaks ~10#'s.  20#'s ... forget it.  Cannot break it off w/o help!  :)

That said, this line is very high in memory ... I've switched to the Berkley Big Game Hi-Test.  But they've discontinued it! >:)

Abrasion resistance is usually linked to diameter. But, how's this for anecdotal evidence....

8# CXX, small diving crankbait, no leader:

Like any other so called "x-tra tough" line, it isn't really meant for spinning reels, and especially in line sizes over 8#. KVD Line & Lure applied regularly relieves most issues, as does actually fishing the line. many lines, I've noticed the coils after sitting for a while, after a few casts, this is gone.

I like p-line cxx for spinnerbaits in heavier cover, but I stick to straight FC for jerkbaits.  I like the lower stretch and the sinking properties of FC when tossing jerkbaits.

Thanks for all the advice. Sounds like I'll be putting Flouro on my spinning gear and the CXX on my baitcaster for those cranks and spinners.

Appreciate all the help I get on this website

Like most said, the CXX is very stiff.  I use 15# for spinnerbaits, buzzbaits.  Jerkbaits I throw mainly 8# fluoro on spinning rods or 10# on baitcasting rods.
