I'm going on my third season using fluoro for pike fishing. Season one was 50# Vicious, never lost a fish but did lose a lure on a cast after not checking the leader after missing a fish. Season two was 80# Vicious, no problems at all. Went to grab a new spool for this year and Daiwa was on sale for a decent price and since it's a well known and respected brand I went with that over the Vicious. I've gotten bit off on both of my last outings now and am about to lose my mind. It sucks knowing you came into contact with something good enough to gulp down a 10" bait in one shot and not at least getting a look at it, it sucks losing hand made custom baits, but it sucks more knowing there could be two magnificent fish out there with my gear stuck in their traps. Hopefully since they were clean bite offs on the hookset the fish just spit em out.
Rant over, anyone else had issues with the Diawa brand leader line?
