Fluorocarbon and Spinning Gear?

Recommended Posts

I fill the spool with a backing leaving room to put around 75-100yds of fluorocarbon.  This not only helps form wasting line it helps out on the wallet too.

mine curently is completely filled with fluro, this is because i forgot to add backing before the flurocarbon lol.  but i use bass pro shops brand of fluro carbon for finese fishing.

To each his own of course, but it's my opinion that spinning gear and fluorocarbon

make odd bedfellows. I agree with Uncle Bill (Dance) who stated:

fluoro on baitcasting gear and braid on spinning tackle.

Fluorocarbon can work on spinning gear, you just need to use a supple line such as Sunline FC Shooter or Seaguar InvizX.

Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft works well.

Ultra Soft is a blend of nylon and fluorocarbon but it is specifically made for spinning tackle because of it's low memory features that are crucial for spinning gear. Besides ultra soft being more supple it still is very abrasion resistant, water proof, UV resistant, and has less stretch then regular monofilaments.

In my experience Ultra Soft is lacking in the abrasion resistance department. Try a 100% fluorocarbon like Trilene or Seaguar Invizx. In the lighter tests both are more than manageable and very abrasion resistant. I think some people try the cheap hybrid or coated FC lines and don't realize how limp a good FC can really be.

In muddy or stained water I definitely agree but most of the lakes where I fish are very clear and the braid= less hits. I have Invizx in 8# and haven't had any problems.

My spinning tackle is set up with 6, 8, and 10lb. test lines, and I use a flouro leader with mono main line. Mono has worked so well for me on spinning tackle that I dont want to give up how it casts and its low memory in those line sizes.

I feel that flouro is too expensive to use a bunch of it just to fill the reel.

I use BPS flourocarbon on all my spinning rods. It does have some memory, but I just don't like braided line for finesse fishing and that's all I really use a spinning rod for.

I have used P-Line's FlouroClear on spinning gear I loan to folks who aren't down with the whole superline/fluoro leader thing I fish with. Pretty good stuff, not expensive.

The best fluoro I've ever used is Orvis "Mirage" leader material - tied to Fireline or PowerPro as a leader! ;D

Yeah, sorry, I know that probably doesn't help.

yep. Invizx is exactly what I use and it is very manageable and easy to cast with. alittle KVD LC helps too.

I've fished with fluorocarbon on spinning reels with few issues.  I think the issues I've had with it involved operator error, getting the line on right.  As sometimes my spinning gear sits for a time between uses, a few shots of reel magic the first few casts helps alot and I've learned to not try to make a monster long cast right off the bat.

I stick with the fluorocarbon because I think the advantages outweigh the hassles.
