Clear is all I have used got hung in a tree on the bank pulled my boat through a 30 foot wide grass matt figured it would break but it never did my partner even asked after seeing that what line I had.
I used Big Game for years until I started using McCoys about 10 years ago. McCoys doesn't have near the memory of Big Game especially in cold weather. I also think the McCoys has a little more stretch when fighting fish which for me results in less break offs. And one major thing for me is I used to get back my line after a break off and could tell it had broken at the knot a lot of times. Not saying it is a problem of the Big Game line but probably more my faulty knot tying but have never really had the problem with McCoys. I really like McCoys but also realize one of my best buddies who is a lot better fisherman than me has used nothing but Big Game forever with no problems. Sometimes it is just getting confidence and a good feel for a particular line and for me that is the McCoys Mean Green and also McCoys Braid.
