Fluro coated mono lines

Recommended Posts

Had a couple questions for you guys who are throwing fluro coated lines. Does it sink??? Right now all my crankbait/top water treble rods have fluro on it. Now that topwater season if FINALLY here I need to move to something that floats like mono. I fish at times some clear water and fluro helps with that. So I'm considering something like Fluroclear if it floats like mono, but I'm betting the coating causes it to sink. Any suggestions??? Also I don't want braid on these rods BTW.

Yo-Zuri floats and the original Hybrid in green matches

clear water very closely. Strong, abrasion resistant, no

special knots and relatively cheap.  I think you will like

the line.

Yeah, the Yozri would be a better topwater choice. FLuoro clear sinks like fluoro....i do love it though!

RW is spot on about the Yozuri Orig. It is great line at a good price. I also like it for shallow crankbaits as well as surface plugs. Sadly I can't get it locally anymore and have to order it or trek for it.

Top water is about the only ap I still use mono for. I prefer the extra forgiveness of Trilene XL in 12 #+ in green even for clear water but the Yozuri is good too. The XL is just a bit more elastic where as the Yozuri is more sensitive. So It probably depends how limber the rod is and your preference. ;)

I also fish a lot of the Pline floroclean (and PLine FC and Suffix braid) and really like it but not for topwater.

P-Line hating going on again? With Floroclear, the fluorocarbon coating is just that - a coating. The core is still copolymer.

Whereas with Yozuri Hybrid, fluorocarbon is actually infused with copolymer to form the core. There is no fluoro coating - the line itself has fluoro.

How can anyone honestly say "Oh, P-Line Floroclear sinks. Get the Yozuri Hybrid."??? That's like saying "Don't get the Chevy Silverado because it's a truck. Get the GMC Sierra."

It's topwater, the fish are not going to see your line. Why choose a fluoro coated mono for a topwater line when you don't need anything clear and the coating of fluoro is going to make it sink faster than regular mono (which isn't a good thing with topwaters)? Stick with a good 12lb or 14lb mono. Sufix Siege for a Baitcaster. Or Sufix Elite if you prefer a softer line. Clear or green, either will work. Like I said, with a topwater the fish are not going to see your line.

Well somr of the rods that I use for top water also serve as cranking rods for me. So I need to worry about visiblity and thickness of the line. I have some Yuzuri Hybrid and honestly I'm not a huge fan of it. I've had some breakage issues with it and I don't like the memory in it. I was hoping for a line that's clearer then mono but still floats like it. How are some of the copolymer lines out there?
