Yozuri Hyrid vs. Invizx

Recommended Posts

How do these two lines compare to each other?  I really like the invizx, but don't like the cost >;)  I am most concerned with sensitivity, visibility, and memory.  Thanks folks

yo-zuri has alot of memory , i actually only used the ultra-soft , and it is supposed to have alot less memory :-/ i have checked it out(the hybrid) at a local tackle store and i would not want to deal with it . maybe try some P-line floroclear . maybe some one will give you their thoughts on floroclear , heard good things about it ... ;)

As one who uses both, you're comparing apples to pear applies. They are not the same.

However, if you are accustomed to invizx's limpness, which I happen to want in my finesse line, then the regular Yozuri isn't going to cut it. I have not used the Yozuri ultrasoft so perhaps others might chime in on it.

I can totally relate with what you said. When I first started using Invizx, it was less than $14 per spool and now my local shops are matching the higher price and it will make it too expensive for my tastes.

You might wish to consider the Cabela's fc line. It is only $10 a spool and it is as close to invizx an fc line as I have tried. It is slightly less limp, but for its $10 price, I won't be complaining.

I love Invizx but hate Yozuri! You might want to try the Cabelas fluro. It's made by Seagur who makes Invizx and the 6lb I had on my spinning gear was nice. I've ordered some 8lb and 20lb a couple days ago.

btw, Bass Pro Shops XPS florocarbon is around 7-9 dollars cheaper than seaguar invsx , or maybe try seaguars red label ......

I have recently spooled a couple of reels with

Inviz 100% Fluorocarbon. It is much softer than

Yo-Zuri Hybrid. My concern is with the strength

in smaller diameters. If it holds up after I have

fished it awhile, I might be inclined to switch

over.

Regarding Yo-Zuri memory. When you initially spool

your reel, treat the line with KVD Line & Lure

Conditioner. Hybrid will lose most of the memory

when you are fishing after just a few casts.

I have tried both. I had 12lb hybrid on 2 reels last year and i liked it but did not love it so i will not be returning to it this year. The memory sucks. Invisx on the other hand is awesome. I will definetly use that again. Probably in a 10lb and a 6lb.

And before i eat crap about saying hybrid has too much memory... Yes i used kvd l&l many times, i treated it, sprayed it and sprayed it and the line still had bad memory. I even trolled it and tied to a tree and stretched it.

I love the Invisz for light-weight stuff but last year I went over to the Abrasx for a while and really liked it, never had to worry about fraying the line. I don't see myself buying the Invisx this year.

I have the XPS flouro in 17lb and it is pretty nice.  I saw that red label stuff, but I haven't heard anything about it.

Wow, it's neat to see some other folks who like Invizx.  I have used the cablea's fc line and it is relatively comaparable to Invizx.

RW, I believe that Invizx will be up to task for you. I'd bet a floating rapala minnow on it, heck make that two! ;)

Invizx is more abrasion resistant and clearer. It also sinks because it is FC. I use Invizx for spinnerbaits, finesse stuff, and bottom baits. I use Hybrid Ultra Soft for topwaters. My experience is that both are pretty limp and manageable but Invizx is slightly more so than Ultra Soft.

All the ultrasoft I've bought didn't have a lot of memory, in fact it has less thean the Izorline xxx I was using previously. Maybe you got a bad or really old spool..?

I must have gotten some bad InvizX.  Mine was like piano wire.  Very stiff.  Hybrid isn't limp, but it was superior to InvizX in that regard.   I only tried InvizX once and hated it.  I use Hybrid for everything now.

i must have , maybe cause the tackle store near me does not sell alot of it ( they have alot though ! ) and the guys there say that not many people like it . i guess i might try some more some time on one of my backup spinning set-ups ... :o

if you run ultra soft through your fingers with a little pressure on it then it should be limper than most lines. If not, it's old

And I don't use ant line conditioner on mine. FWIW, I bought a filler spool of 10lb ultrasoft some months ago..and I didn't like it at all...my Son hates it, but then he's a trilene xl fan..lol

I get mine from 1 tackle shop, cuz I know they sell lots of it, and have fresh line 99% of the time. You can order on line if you'd like the name, I'd be happy to pm it to you.

Invizx is the only fluorocarbon I use on my spinning gear.  Baitcasting I'm not picky seaguar, p-line, XPS, Berkley, ect.  As for mono and co-polymers I like floroclear and sensation for spinning tackle.  As for baitcasting I use sensation, big game, trilene XL, and cxx.

Don't bother it's pretty bad and has a ton of memory unfortunately.

The red label line sucks. It is a cheap alternative to people who don't want to spend a few more bucks for good line, think spiderwire braid. I switched to vicious last year and I cant say one bad thing about it.
