Yo-Zuri Hybrid Ultra Soft: Green or Clear?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to open this question up to everyone.

Im about to spool up a few of my combos, but i dont know what color to get. Im asking this because all the reviews i have read of Green is that is not even the same line (in a negative way)...

Thanks,

VC

That's news to me. Green is what I would buy , as a matter of fact it's cheap enough to buy a spool of both colors.

Did you hear that on this forum? I use nothing but green. I do believe that a certain someone will be along shortly to clarify. :;)

Diameter and breaking strength are the same:

#6 .010" diameter, ~ 11.9 lbs breaking strength;

#12 .013", 19.5 lbs

I think green blends better in the water.

"Clear" looks white to me.

I use the green 6 and 12 as RW posted. He turned me on to this line last year and I have never been happier(Thanks Kent).

Tough, nice line lay, no memory problems(fish mostly in current) and casts very well. Great "feel" too. I just went and got this year's supply last night.

2 small spools of 6lb will get me through the season for the spinning rig and usually one spool of 12 will do for the BC rig.

There was a nice older genleman in Cabela's last night looking at the line selection. i could see the look on his face.."wow, what in the heck do I pick?" I felt as though I could help him out. I showed him a big spool of Ande's and said "this is what I used for YEARS." He said "me too!". I showed him the YZ HS and said "this is all you will ever need...please, give it a shot." We got into a little chat about what he fishes for and such and he ended up buying the YZ. I gave him my # to tell me if he liked it or not.

As already stated, I use both clear and green, have seen NO difference.

Even better, it's nicely priced!

I owe my "finding out about it" to RW, thanks dude!

Cabela's has one pound spools (6800 yds) of Ultra Soft  in #8 and #10 test on sale for $60.

I tried a small spool last week and liked enough to try it out for the year so I ordered one in green.   8-)

Currently I use clear Yozuri in 8 and 10lb on my bc reels. When I need to get more I'm gonna be picking up the green. The city lakes I fish tend to have a greenish tint to them and stain my clear line, so green will be the way I go from now on.

Is this line mono or a blend of flou.?

Hybrid and Hybrid Ultra Soft are a bonded,

not coated, nylon/ fluorocarbon blend. The

Ultra Soft formula (probably) has a higher

percentage of nylon than the original.

Thanks, RW. I will have to try both of them.  Now that  the Gamma will not be around anymore! I am looking for a good replacement and this could be it.

Yep, seems like All city lakes except Laguna have the green tint to it. I use mostly the green, but have caught fish with the clear.
