|buckaroo||I tied a bunch using 20 lbs Berkley Vanish. Used to use Trilene XT 12 lbs. Havenít had a chance to try the fluoro versions yet, but they work great for Carolina rigging bass so Iím hopeful.|

|Mrxlh||Berkley Trilene Big Game 15# green, been using it for 8 years, rarely have I ever been bit off. However last year I tied up some using AFW Surflon 20# 1X7 where we were specifically looking for Pike, no bite offs at all using it. Wire rigs only last a few fish if you let them roll in the net, as they tend to kink easily. 9 wrap snell knots on the hooks, mono or steel, crimped loop with swivel on steel, 7 turn improved clinch on mono to the swivel.|

Still hoping to hear folks chime in on the P-Line CFX versus Seaguar Blue Label question even if not on the more general subject of this thread...

|James F||I have tried floro,and mono. I prefer the mono,due to the stretch factor. Paired with the right rod,hook ups on a light bite can make a difference. I usually don't worry about line visibility. My biggest problem is line twist. The bling on hook is for visibility. Braid and a longer leader. My advice is to experiment, not all conditions are the same. Good luck.|

How about P-Line CFX versus Seaguar Blue Label?
Anybody out there?... (Maybe everyone's too busy with COVID-19 and the stock market, eh?)

Floor is way more expensive, doesnít tie up well w standard knots resandiego not and I had many break off especially I fall and cold temps. Braid takes some getting use to and again pair it w a softer rod.
Mono is pretty much what I go with. The stretch is a buffer when fighting fish. Rods usually. Say what is recommend on the rod. Stay there or something going to break.

|Waba||NO I have not tried that P-line that I can recall. My post was just to relay that in my experience I have never noticed any advantage to fishing Fluorocarbon leader as compared to simply using regular Fluorocarbon line.|

I'm not arguing with you about anything; I just like to know the basis on which people are speaking.

Plain ĎOl Red Cajun 12 lb mono. Holds up well enough for my purposes without breaking the bank. Got out for the first time in a quite a while last week and we ended up catching spotted Bass on homemade slow death rigs...go figure
