Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon

Recommended Posts

I've used this stuff and I think it's great. It's a high quality line for the price. This poor student angler is pretty happy?

What do you all think?

Quality stuff.  Better than Vanish or the Cabelas stuff.  Thats all I've used though.

Well, it's fine If you don't use it for a leader with heavier baits. I've had the 12lb fluro snap, and it wasn't at my knot.. Lost 2 20.00 lures.. >:)

I have used the 8, 15, 17 and 20 lb test and just love the stuff.  Never given me any reason to lose confidence.  I'll be picking up some 6 lb in the near future.

I've been very pleased with it so far, didn't break off once last year and manageable enough to use on a spinning reel.

I've only used the 17lb, but it seemed like good line to me.

I used it for about a season and a half. I found it to be pretty stiff and unmanageable at times. (and yes I use KVD Line Conditioner religiously) I lost SEVERAL expensive lures due to the line snapping on hook sets. I gave it a fair chance and its just not the line for me. I don't have any of the same problem with BPS XPS Fluoro. Not to mention it's much cheaper!

I've used the 100% since it came out and have no complaints. I use the 15, 17 and 20 the most and it's been very good line in all aspects.

I do however use a different brand fluorocarbon on my spinning gear.

I broke off on two fish with it already and this is my first year using it.  I retie and spray religously, but it still becomes unmanagable and to easy to break.  Will try something else next time :)

Wow. I'm surprised by the complaints. I really hope they aren't pushing defective line because I plan on buying more and spooling up soon. I never had the stuff break even a single time, and found it surprisingly resistant to cuts and abrasion from Northern teeth. I used the 8, 10, 12, and 15# tests on my worm, jig, tube, dropshot and pitching rods, both as main line and leaders. I didn't really like it on spinning reels, so I ended up doing braid and fluoro leader on all of them but one. The #15 makes for a fine line for pitching, jigging, and worms.

What is everyones expierence with seaguar?  I'm thinking of starting to flip with flouro and do not have enough expierence with either Trilene or Seaguar as I've only used it on spinning apps but my buddy has started to throw crankbaits with the trilene flouro and does like it.  With a little KVD conditioner he has had no problems with it, if that helps anyones decisions.

The KVD Line and Lure conditioner definitely helps any fluorocarbon that I've ever used it on. In my opinion, Sunline Super Sniper is the absolute best fluorocarbon line made but even that gets a little 'stiff' once you get to the 12# and up.

I feel ripped off since I paid so much and all I bought was MEMORY! It was fishable for 2 weeks >:) I put sufix fluoro on similar reels and its SWEEEET! Have purchased KVD line conditioner for it, maybe that'll help ::) Had it snap trying to free a finesse jig, when other lines of similar strength straightened the hook.

It's expenxive but its great line. I think you'll like it.

Fluorocarbon isn't the best line if you don't know how to tie a good knot.  Very susceptible to friction burn.  Knot must be well lubricated and cinched using the tag end.

I totally agree, I found out the hard way the other day when my line came back curly tailed.

I only use Trilene 100% flouro and Vanish for baitcasting gear.  Although I've always seen many negative reviews and opinions on this line I've never had any issues with it or had any reason to swap to a different line.  A buddy of mine just started using the Trilene Transition I believe it is, and loves it.  I won't use it because the line turns to the color of the water and when it's brown I think it makes all my baitcaster setups look ugly lol.  It really does work well though it's like a chameleon!

FBL... is the Sniper your choice on spinnning gear? Give me a comparative review of Sniper to Trilene 100%.

Steve

The Sunline Sniper is smaller in diameter than the Berkley 100% for starters. Sunline 10# is the same diameter as Berkley 6#. I suspect this is why the Sniper performs so well.

It has great knot strength (Burley made a good point about fluorocarbon knots earlier) The smaller diameter Sniper exceeds it's test rating. The only difference other than diameter is the type of resin they use to make the lines. I cant say for sure because I dont know the types they use but after using both, it's my opinion that Sunline uses a better resin blend, making the line thinner, stronger and in the abrasion resistance department, I'd call it a wash. Both are very good against abrasions.

All in all, both are great lines. One just happens to be thicker than the other and the thicker is a little less manageable on a spinning reel. The Sniper excels on spinning gear.

I havent used the Green Metan Sunline so I cant say. I suspect it would perform very well, judging by the price.  :)
