I bought some P Line. Good choice?

Recommended Posts

I have a 6'6" St Croix with a 2500 size reel I want to use for weightless plastics, or up to 1/8oz weight, no more.  I went to the store to get some braid, but all they had was this stuff called P Line Original PF.  Ive never used it before.  I got 8Lb.  Will that work OK for what I want?

P-Line makes good line. I bought the original a long time ago, and didnt care for it then. I use P-Line CX-Premium now. I love it! It is good mono. I spray it with KVD Line and Lure conditioner. AWESOME STUFF! Makes for some good, trouble free fishing.

P line is bad. Throw it away. It is thick for its size and it had alot of memory, which isn't a good thing on a spinning reel. Use it to hang pictures with.

If you're familiar with the Trilene brand, then CX is the XL of the PLine family.  CXX is the XT.

It is thick for its size

What does that even mean?  :-?

Didn't I just run the freaking numbers a month or so ago, and CXX was actually thinner than Trilene XT?

:-?

Where do these people get their info from?

I use 20#  flouroclear on an 8000 series reel for offshore fishing and caught fish over a 100# with it, strong.........you bet.

Pline has a great line of lines.

I myself use 8-12 lb CX or CXX fluorescent clear for most everything except when braid is needed.

edit: I was out there cleaning out my tackle box and double checked my line: my spincast has 14lb spiderwire mono on it usually for low weed topwater stuff, catfish or the river, and my spinning reel has 15lb PowerPro braid.

Right now the only reel using the Pline CX is my light duty 1000 spinning reel on a 6' rod, with 6lb Pline CX that I use for small bass and large bream.

i like P-line in 6# for spinning rods , it does have some memory but is manageable , just change it out when it gets to bad. i use 10# and 12# for baitcasters , but am gonna try 8# here pretty soon (next time i re-spool ) should be very good since i throw alot of deep diving crankbaits and big worms(1/4-3/8 oz. bullet weight , texas rigged) so yeah , p-line cxx is some good line , just don't favor it in 15# and up . when i go 15# and up , i use Izorline XXX ....  ;)

This is the kind of question you ask BEFORE you buy, not after.

Good choice?

What makes fishing line a good choice?

It's common knowledge that P-line produces some of the "toughest" fishing line in the world,

but its memory is not in the same league as braided line.

(that stuff would never find its way on my spinning reels).

I use 15 lb. floroclear for jigging. The diameter is 0.36mm. Practically invisible, casts as far as i ever needed it to, with incredible strength.
