In late 2008 I found a pretty large quantity of this line on sale at Wal-Mart for $1.00 per spool, so I bought several spoolsl. I didn't get to fish much last year and I'm wondering if those who have used the line would comment on it. I have spools with 6#, 8#, 10# and maybe some other. I could put it on spinning or baitcasting outfits. I will say it seems a bit stiff to me which propmted this question.

Yes, it 's stiffer than nylon but not that bad as long as you keep it in low diameter, go above 12 lb test and .... you really need to fish with a slinky ?  :-?

What 's so good about it ? man it 's ridiculously strong for such a thin diameter, also it 's very resistant to abrassion and quite dense so it transmits vibrations better.

6 & 8 lbs are great for spinning reels.

It is very good line...

But my previous experiences with that line has taught me a few things.

The spools you bought from wal-mart is still good line, as I have used it before. But, I may be wrong, but wal-mart never offered hybrid in a "clear" color. It was always green or smoke. In my opinion, the clear vs the smoke/green are 2 different lines. The smoke/green hybrid doesn't perform the way the clear does. You should try and find some of the clear and see for yourself. But at a $1 a spool. You cant go wrong. :)

The "clear" 12# hybrid is one of my all time favorite lines ever and the spools at wal-mart turned me onto it.

Hmm...

I wonder how the coloration could effect

performance? I have used all three colors

without noticing anything other than how

they blend with different water clarity and

color.

For clear water, I think green blends best.

Stained water, purple smoke. White looks

nice on silver reels!

My thoughts excactly ,but the clear line is no where near as stiff as the colored line.(In my opinon, which may not be a good one)  :)

It could also be that wal-mart may have had those spools for years or so. I'm sure age has to play a part in it at sometime.?.?

Green or clear..all works the same for me.

Raul nailed the reason why YoZuri line is our choice. :)

Dunno..12 is the heaviest I've used, and it was more managable then the 100% fluro, I have on now. BTW, this is w/o any line conditioner. My guess is the 15 will be fine.

I have no experience with Ultrasoft so I can 't comment on it, the only place I can find it is at Cabela 's and Cabela 's normally has nothing I want so I don 't purchase there.

But according to RW the plasticity properties between both lines are different and while one is a slinky the other one isn 't.

I have to say that even though I like Hybrid I still prefer nylon most of the time, but when you gotta do what you gotta do and you know nylon won 't cut it, it 's Hybrid or CXX.  :)

It 's a matter of what I want, to slice submerged timber or to uproot it.  ;D

I would say that I love the line overall. Use the 6 or 8 pound on your spinning gear unless you have some large caliber reels (I use 12 on my BPS Pro Qualifier size 4000 with no problems). I really think it is superior to mono and doesn't have some of the negative properties of fluoro...it is strong, can be used top water (sinks, but not like fluoro) or under, and is pretty abrasion resistant.

Again, I would say all that but instead I'll say...the line is junk, you should send me all the spools of it for $1 each and I will safely "dispose" of it for you :D
