Hey guys!

To be short, I am going to use 20lb Power Pro braid and was wondering what brand of Fluoro you guys recommend? I am new to fluoro, usually use mono-- I'll be fishing inshore, 7ft medium rod-

Thanks!!

I've had great luck with the Seaguar fluorocarbon. Ive used both the red label and the Invisx. Take your time with your knots. I suggest you tie them slowly and make sure they are lubricated. Tying knots in fluoro is less forgiving than mono. Lots of people use different knots but for me I used the improved Albright knot to tie the fluoro leader to braid and I use a trilene knot to attach the fluoro to my hook/bait/swivel.

I've tried almost every brand of fluoro out there. Pretty much buying what's available and have not had a bad one. I mostly use Seaguar but also have Stren and some unpronounceable japanese brands in my bags.

Another vote for Seaguar Invizx.

There are many very reliable fluoros for leaders but this one seems to always garner good reviews.

For a medium spinning reel, I use 10 lbs. braid to an 8 lbs. fluoro leader. If I were using a bait caster, I'd likely use a heavier braid I think.
