Flourocarbon Pros and Cons
I've used it. the only stuff I found to be very good was by P-Line. All the Berkley stuff was a coiled mess. I use it now only for jigging through the ice.
It casts nice, but I mainly fish rocks, so I don't use it often because it sinks faster and I feel you get more snags with it.
it's strong, I like it for ice fishing and it seems more clear to me so I believe the claims to be true. clear water lakes during ice fishing it could be a difference maker at times. I can't 100% prove that though.
I agree with what others here are saying. For me, it's a little too unruly to use a full spool of it, but as a leader it works pretty well. I guess I don't fish enough lakes that are so highly pressured that I have to worry about using fluoro over another supposedly more visible line.
Try this on your spinning reel; main line with braid of your choose, cast out as far as you can, now cut the casted line off at the reel and replace with your floro or mono (your choose). Now you will have the best of both world. Not to mention; no knot skip at first cast. Generally you will have about 100 to 120 feet of line out to make your cast and no override or loops. good luck.
tried out flourocarbon line on spinning reel again opening day and was met with constant uncoiling of line. This was after using line conditioner on it when spooling during off season. Read a tip online to soak reel in hot water for 15 minutes, i did 30 minutes and solved problem day #2.
Through research I found compelling reasons to use KVD line conditioner over Reel Magic, so i will make this change moving forward.
Hook sets, casting distance, strength, etc are all improved with this.
Baitcasters I use mostly all fluoro and love it. I'm with the mention of Red Label, its cheap, but I've had great success with it over the past 3 years. With fluoro, tying a good knot is absolutely critical. I highly recommend the San Diego Jam Knot...
