I have faired very well with this line.  Never had knots slip or unexplainable breaks.  XPS and Berkey Trilene 100% Fluoro I think are the two best Fluroro's out there (though, I haven't tried them all, so there maybe other good lines).

I used to hate fluorocarbon lines until I used the XPS.  I really like it, I use 12lb on my jerkbait rod.

xps is great line it has just a tad bit more memory that seaguar but overall it is one of the better fluorocarbons

just goes to show...it was lucky enough to last one day with me.

in my hands, the xps seems to dig into itself after a heavy hookset, much more so than other fluoro's i've used...making the spool hang at the point of that dig on the next cast.

when you set the hook on as many stumps as i do...

I really like it. I have the 12# on my carbon lite setup and no problems yet. So far it really seems very strong and I yet had that nick and fray problem people have mention and I'm pulling up branches, fishing lilies, and off rocks. I have only tried one other flouro so can't really compare it to anything else but I will continue to buy this brand.

This line was rumored to be Toray, but I don't think it's made by the same folks, and the contact I have a Bass Pro won't (or can't?) tell me who makes it for them.

I've used it, and it's very strong. I only use it for leader w/superline, so I could't tell anyone how it works "full spool".

I use it in 6, 8 on spinning reels and 12, 15 lb on baitcasters.  I like it. I also used Seaguar, Trilene and Vanish.

You need to use spinning reels with wider spools (I use Daiwa 2000 and 2500 size) for better line management.

Make sure the knot is properly tied, lubricated and set.

I tried one spool and it was yellow right out of the box. Don't know if this was due to light exposure or what. BPS personel had no idea.For me, Berkley 100% was better but Seaguar Invisx was best---clear as crystal.

We all talk about fishing being a "confidence" game. Well, Seaguar exudes the quality that builds confidence. It is wound on the spool so perfectly it looks as if it were painted on.

Knot strength, memory, line diameter, abrasion resistence etc. are remarkable.
