I usually use Gamma Edge 100% fluorocarbon, but like many says fluorocarbon is not that great for bobber fishing. Anyone know the difference between copolymer and mono? I'll probably be purchasing Gamma's high performance copolymer line for float fishing. Any input and information would be great! Thanks

No the CoPolymer does not sink like Fluoro. The Gamma high performance is the best copolymer I've used. It works great for slip float fishing and all other uses.

Yeap fluorocarbon sinks a lot! Experienced with all fluoro lines I've used. Does anyone know if copolymer sinks like fluoro? Buddy of mine used gamma copolymer and liked it a lot but got a little expensive for his budget to buy several spools. I've used pline in the past and had bad experience with 6lb test so I'm done with that. Broke on every fish from 10inch to 16inch. Lost a lot of my good lures too Sad . Gamma is quite expensive but worked great for me. So as of now, sticking to whats working for me Big Smile

The reason flurocarbon doesn't work well for slip bobber fishing is that it SINK"S.That make's it hard to set the hook I even grease mono with fly line floatant up to 10feet of the end.
