What the heck is the difference in mono and fluro? Sounds rookie but i'm dying to know.. any simple explanations?
Let me complicate the matter as best I can.
Fluoro is mono. Mono means made of a single strand. Resin mono is what is typically referred to as monofilament. Fluorocarbon line is also made of a single strand just not of resin. It's a big two dollar word that I won't trouble you with.
Resin mono typically floats but it also gets water logged. People typically like it because it's the best bang for your buck. It's cheaply made in other words. Once it gets water logged, it is prone to abrasions and loses some of it's good characteristics.
Fluoro mono sinks, is stronger, has less stretch, but costs significantly more. As stated.... Grrreat refractive index for clear water environments.
That's the quick and dirty version.
